Gift Idea for Your Kiddos

If you are looking for a great gift idea for your kiddos, I will be sending home some Scholastic Book order forms this week. You can order online by Friday morning, and let me know by email that you want it to be a secret. I can place your order in the office for pickup or send it home in a brown paper bag. Just a thought.

What Are We Working On This Week?


Character Education: Generosity


Reader's Workshop: Book Groups - each group has a chapter book that they will be working on over the next few weeks.
