Inclement Weather Policy
When we are not able to come to school due to inclement weather, please continue to study Spelling words at home. We will try our best to keep on our test schedule and will be giving tests at the first available moment. Also, please keep up with the Lifework assignments as best you can. We realize that you may not have the worksheets to complete before they are due, however, keep up with the reading and spelling assignments and we will adjust the worksheets accordingly. If we are out for more than one consecutive day please read for 20 minutes every day, write 3 sentences about your day and illustrate, practice math for 30 minutes on IXL, and continue to do the Spelling Lifework and practice the spelling words. We will check the work when we return.
When Winter Comes
by Laura Numeroff
When winter comes I love to skate.
I get there early and I stay quite late.
I don't go too fast, it's all very new.
There are so many things I wish I could do.
I know how to glide and spin around,
But sometimes I end up on the ground.
One day I'll do a figure eight!
When winter comes I love to skate!
