    Please note that all other assignments in Google Classroom outside of the Mrs. Eddy's Homework classroom are for school work and do not need to be completed at home!

  • Look outside at the moon and complete your moon diary every night for 4 weeks starting Monday, January 18 and finishing on Sunday, February 14. This should take just a few minutes! Moon diaries were handed out in science class and should be in students' Homework tab of their take home binders, but you can print a new copy from the link below if needed.

Note: Please let us know if your child does not have access to an internet-connected device at home to complete online assignments so that we can come up with an alternate plan for your child.

Valentine's Day Party - Bring in a Shoebox!

We are getting ready for our Valentine's Day party on Friday, February 12 from 1:15-2:15! During the party, the students will make ice cream sundaes and will have the opportunity to pass out valentines to their homeroom. Volunteers are needed to sign up for donations for our party.

If students choose to bring valentines, we ask that they bring one for all students in their homeroom. See the link below for a list of names of students in each class.

During the party, students will decorate shoeboxes to hold their valentines. Please send in a shoebox with your child's name on it between now and the day of the party. If you are able to send any extra shoeboxes you have, it would be greatly appreciated!
