FAMILY JOURNAL-Monday (or before the next Friday when we'll be writing in it again)

Family Journal Time!

You will see your child's Family Journal coming home today! Please read the letter (the first few weeks will be shorter, as we're reviewing complete sentences and other letter writing skills). The students love when you respond to their letter in the journal. Please send the Family Journal back on Monday (or before next Friday when we'll write again).
