  • ALL homework books and assignments should be signed and dated by parents.
  • Students should have at 3 - 5 sharpened pencils for school each day (this is a daily homework and should be a part of the packing routine). Sharpening pencils during class time is not allowed as sharpeners are not allowed (until I get an electric one)

INDIVIDUAL PARENT TEACHER CONFERENCES

Conferences are still taking place. I have met with ALMOST every parent. THANK YOU SO MUCH for taking time to not only meet with me, but in being so patient when the conference before you goes overtime.


I greatly appreciate each and everyone of you.

PRINTING SUPPLIES

Parents, I do a lot of interactive notebook activities with my students. This requires a lot of ink and paper. The school can do some but not all. I have my own printers/copiers in my class. I need your assistance to help defray the cost of the paper and ink.


This is not a demand or a must. If you can assist, great! If you can't, no problem. Whatever you can do will be greatly appreciated.


Ink

#670 (black, blue, yellow, pink) available @ John Bull for about $13.00 per cartridge. I found out this weekend that there is a computer supply store on Maderia Street that has the cartridges for about $11.00.


#61 (black and color) available @ Verde for $20/$25 per cartridge


Paper - regular copy paper which John Bull has for $5-$6 per ream.
