Welcome back to school! I hope everyone got to read a bit this summer!
Students have started checking out books. Kindergarten does not take books home for first quarter as we learn how to treat books, use shelf markers, etc. 1st graders will be bringing home a letter next week to be signed and begin bringing their books home. 2nd grade may check out two books, 3rd three books, 4th four books, and 5th graders may check out up to five books, but must be reasonable to finish reading them within 2 weeks.
If your student has missing books from last year please return them as soon as possible. You may also return any books from other schools here and I can send them to their school.
I’m looking forward to seeing you at open house! Mrs. Gamble
