Learning This Week
Reading- This week students will describe characters and a setting in fiction stories.

Last week's class attendance: 99.49%
Our attendance goal for Sweeny is 96% or higher attendance. In our classroom, we are trying to earn an attendance celebration. Every day that we have 100% attendance we earn a letter. When we spell "perfect attendance," we will celebrate! "If you're not at school, you're not learning!"
