We will begin weekly spelling homework next week. 20 minutes of practice on Spelling City will be asked per week as well as a sheet sent home weekly to practice spelling concepts.

Oh, the Places We'll Go as a 1:1 Campus!

As we move into a new semester, it is important that we consider the storage issues on each child's iPad. Because students will be taking these iPads with them all the way through 5th grade, there is great potential for their iPad to have very little storage at some point. In order to help this, please encourage your child to upload any important photos, videos, or documents on their iPad to their Google Drive. Once they have put them on their Google Drive, they can delete them off their iPad.
