In the Classroom
*In writing students have started a personal journal. At any time your child may bring in a picture to place in the journal to write about. If you would like to email me a photo I will print it off for them. I know several of the students compete in the mud run, some have started football, or it could just be a family or friends pic.
Our school collects box tops year round. If you have box tops at home, please send them in at any time. Our school earns 10 cents for every box top, which adds up quickly. We have been able to purchase items for students such as new playground equipment with the money from box tops.
