Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
We will be using some of this time this week to review and complete some assessments for report cards. Friday is the end of the second nine weeks.
Overall, we had a good first week back. They were definitely happy to be with their friends!
It was nice to have time over the break to plan and make materials for some of our lessons. It's like I need an organizing day or two every couple of weeks!
Don't forget that Monday, January 18 will be a HOLIDAY, in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
I will be out Tuesday attending a district Math training and in the morning on Wednesday to attend a training on our campus for Go Quest, a digital resource our school recently purchased. If you have any unusual transportation changes, please be sure to let the office know.
