Homecoming Float...

Just a reminder in lieu of PLCs we will be decorating the float in teams. If you are a EIP, ESOL, SPED teacher please join your grade level team in assisting with decorating.

Lunch Applications...

This is the last week for families to complete applications. Please, please, please remind your parents to complete their applications.

Thank you Mr. Soto for coming to visit my classroom during writer's workshop. You gave great feedback and I am really excited to implement these new strategies in my classroom. It was a pleasure discussing with you ways I can be better and hearing some positive notes on what I was doing in my classroom!
