Week of January 20th
Enjoy Your Day Off!
Monday of this week is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. All teachers are out of the office today, and no classes should appear on your plan. Of course, you are welcome to work on your day off, but don't work too hard! It is a holiday after all :) I will answer all kmails and phone calls Tuesday morning.
What do you think of the new look and feel of the newsletter? I've gotten some positive feedback so far, but I'd love to hear how to make this as useful and informative as possible. All ideas are welcome!
Talk to you soon,

Is your student doing something you want to share with the world? (or at least with our class?) Is your Learning Coach working hard to help you learn?
Please send any pictures, stories of exciting news and/ or hard work that you want to share with the class. This can be school and non school related. It can be as big as landing a part in a local play, to finally writing you numbers in the right direction.
Let’s celebrate it all TOGETHER!!!
