Be kinder than is necessary

Dear Families:

Just a little business this week. . .

I have not yet received all the report card envelopes. If you haven't already, please return the signed envelope.

Remember, if a student has been absent due to illness, he or she has the same number of days gone to complete missing work. For example, if four days were missed, all work is expected within four days. This can be daunting as the regular work continues. Thank you for your support in helping the students stay accountable to their responsibilities as fifth graders.

Carpe Diem!
