Field Trip

The permission slips for the Citibank field trip and money for the bus are due no later than next Friday, March 21st. If you would like to send in the money for lunch at McDonald's at a later time, that is fine. If you will not be able to send in the money for the bus by next Friday, you must let me know when you will send it in if you have not done so already.

Math Test

Next Tuesday, March 18th will be the unit test over adding and subtracting fractions and mixed number fractions. Students were given a study guide this past Thursday. The study guide is due on Monday to review for the test.

Spring Pictures

Spring Pictures will be Wednesday, March 26th. A flyer was sent home last week. These are the pictures in which you do not have to send money in advance. The photographers will take the pictures, and then send them home for you to decide if you want to purchase them.

Book Orders

I sent home a book order today. If you would like to order, the due date is Friday, March 28th. Please send in a check or money order ONLY; cash is not accepted by Scholastic.
