Back to a regular schedule!

Finally after finishing quarter two, a week with Katie McKy and Valentine's Day now over, we finally can get back to a regular schedule. We still have a lot of learning to do. Please help support your children from home by talking to them about appropriate school behavior and helping them be more respectful, responsible, and safe Suamico Panthers.

Guided Reading

It is SO IMPORTANT that you are reading their guided reading book at night. I have been hearing more often from the kids that they didn't read the night before, but it is SO CRUCIAL to their development and fluency. Thank you for helping with your child's success! Help your child to remember and be responsible for putting their book bags in their backpack. It is so hard to teach them without their books. Very rarely do we have extra copies of the book.

Also please check for any guided reading books at home - I am missing a few!
