Students WILL receive a Time for Kids on Thursday, January 7, to read for a home reader quiz on next Thursday, January 14.

No Spelling Test This Week

On Friday, students will receive a homophone review list for a spelling test on Friday, January 15.

No Journals Due This Week

Barker Bees will turn in their journals next Tuesday, January 12. I handed them to the Bees the week we got out for Winter Break, so they should already have their journals in their binders.

I will hand out Owl journals on January 12, and students in my homeroom will have until Tuesday, January 19 to turn them in.
