- Please reinforce at home the importance of having all of necessary supplies ready to go at school. There is a good percentage of students that don't come to school with PENCILS. Our extra supply ran out before winter break, and we have kept "loaners" marked with tape available in the classrooms, and now that supply has also dwindled to stubby pencils without erasers. Thank you for your help with this!
- Please let your child's teacher know if they will be going home with another student or going home another way (ex. carpool - walker)

Book Clubs: Book Clubs have been a huge success! I love hearing our students have authentic conversations about text. Remember, each student is responsible for taking care of their novel. These novels are brand new! If your child loses or damages a book club novel, there will be a $10 fee.
Homework: Homework will be to read the assigned book club chapter(s) for the week and respond. Responses will change from week to week. This week's response is free choice from the "Novel Study Choice Board" Make a Bingo! (passed out in class on Monday). Due Friday!
