We hope you had a wonderful weekend and are enjoying this amazing fall weather! Please check your child's Falcon Folder this week for math homework. Homework will be sent home on Fridays and will be due the following Thursday. Your child will be allowed to turn homework in earlier if they would like, but it is not due until Thursday. We will alternate math and reading homework every week.
