Mrs. Hawker's Classroom Newsletter
September 12, 2014
From Mrs. Hawker
Each week I will put together a classroom newsletter that contains information about what is happening in our classroom and school community. Creating the newsletter online allows me to include links to websites, articles, pictures, and student work. The newsletter will also be displayed on our classroom website during the week. If you would like it sent to another email other than the ones you provided the office, please write me a note or an email.
Please send a healthy snack with your child each day.
We have gym class on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. Please be sure to have your child pack or wear gym shoes.
Have you checked out our classroom webpage yet? You can access it through the 4th grade link on Forest Glen's website, or go directly to mrshawker4.weebly.com
