Disciples of Christ

Next week is a short week, so there will not be a newsletter.

Things to remember:

  • Next week is a short week so there will not be a spelling test. We will have our weekly quiz for Lesson 7 Old Yeller.
  • I hope you are able to join us for the 11:30 Thanksgiving prayer service on Wednesday.
  • Please monitor Power School as we near the end of the trimester. Students need to earn 25 AR points by then.
  • When students have missing work, I give them a slip listing the work. My expectation is that the work is completed and returned the next day with the slip. It is up to the student to do the work and turn it in to receive credit. Your support through daily planner checks is encouraged and greatly appreciate. Additionally, you can refer to Power School to monitor assignments.


Mrs. Getchman

Everyone deserves a standing ovation at least once in their life.
