Glamourcraft has offered to come back for class picture retakes (only class pictures, not individual spring pictures). This will be happening on Thursday, Those that ordered pictures will receive the class pictures taken on 2/25!

Math Homework

Students were given math homework this week. In class on Monday and Tuesday they were given 15 minutes to begin working on the assignment and ask any questions they may have had. If they were finished today they were given the option to turn in the work or take it home for "homework." Any work not finished in class was also taken home today in Tuesday folders.

All homework needs to be returned by Friday. Please help your child bring it back to school as soon as it is finished! Math homework will continue through April.
