Weekly Update:

Happy Thursday!

I hope everyone has had a wonderful St. Patricks Day!

Report cards will be coming home soon. Several students brought their grades up significantly during retests, however some of them did not take retests seriously. Look out for your child's report card coming soon. Assessments this week will begin grades for Fourth nine weeks.

We need tissues! The students allergies are going crazy with all of the spring blossoms and pollen. We are running low on our supply of tissues. If you are able, please send in tissues for us.

Have a Great week!

Volunteers and Chaperones

If you wish to volunteer in the classroom or chaperone field trips this year please go to the website and sign up. Also, you are welcome to visit your child at lunch, but due to liability, coming to recess is not allowed.


All students and parents must complete the iPad orientation this year. You also need to fill out the paperwork and send in the signature pages with your payment upon completing orientation. Hard copies will be sent home today with those students still missing paperwork! Students will be using these iPads for learning in the classroom, so it is very important that this is completed.

iPads will begin coming home with students who have paid the 35 dollar insurance fee will begin bringing iPads home Wednesday September 9th (Orientation must be completed as well).

All students will have access to iPads within the classroom.

Please let me know if you have questions regarding iPads.
