Dallas Art Museum Field Trip

We would like to send out a big thank you to Mrs. Arango, Mrs. Rivera, Mrs. Fletcher, Mrs. Elibiary, and Mr. and Mrs. Machen for volunteering to be chaperones on our upcoming field trip to the DMA. Many students have already turned in their permission slips and money. If you haven't had a chance to do this yet, please have both items by October 2nd. If you need another permission slip, we are attaching one below. Thank you!

Progress reports will be sent home on Wednesday, September 23rd. Once you receive your child's progress report, please sign and return the bottom portion to your child's homeroom teacher.
