The Breadwinner Packet

Parvana's Journey Packet


Please do one of the following:

Reminder: Article Assignment Due Monday

Students have an article assignment (from their Breadwinner packets) due on Monday. It should be typed.

QR Code Books

This week, we went to the media center and Mrs. George showed students that we have many books in the library with a QR code on the cover--these books can be downloaded to students' devices free of charge! They can keep the book on their device for as long as they want, and can download as many as they wish (or as many as his/her phone will hold). In order to do this, they need to download a QR Reader app from the app or play store. The app is free and there are several to choose from.

Picture Day

Picture Day is scheduled for September 27th, 2016. Retake day will be October 18th. You can pre-order pictures online at shop.legacystudios.com. Our school code is 6035F17D. Please print your receipt and send it in with your child on picture day. Students should have received a flyer with an envelope in homeroom this week.
