Happy New Year! It's 2015!!!

Welcome back! We hope you had a restful, happy winter break full of family and friends. We are re-energized and ready to start second semester! We'll be setting goals for the new year and getting back to our routine this week. We're looking forward to seeing your children and hearing all about their time off.

25 Book Challenge Check-In

With second semester underway, now is a great time to take a look at your child's 25 Book Challenge record sheet located in his/her green take-home folder. If your child is about half-way through the challenge, he/she is right on track! If not, there is still time to reach the goal! Be sure to add to the list books your child reads in addition to homework and/or books you have read to him/her.
