Davis/Martin Weekly Update

November 30 - December 4

Dear Parents,

We hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving and restful break. We are back in full swing for the next 3 weeks until Christmas Break. With that being said, there are a lot of upcoming events, so be on the lookout for flyers, remind texts, and facebook updates!


Mid-Quarter reports went home on November 20th. Reading reports will go home in the next day or so, updating you on your child's progress towards meeting their 5 chapter book requirement. Remember that 2nd quarter ends on Friday December 18th.
