Please remember:

To accomplish this well, your child will need to be diligent about studying and working on notebook assignments. Please help your child navigate this around their extracurricular activities. For example, if Tuesday and Thursday are going to be busy one week, please let them know to plan to work on Science/ SS notebooks on the other days. They will still have time to work on these things in class, but many of the children will need some time at home to be successful. After reading for 20 minutes, your child shouldn't spend more than another 20 focused minutes on Science/ SS on any given night. Reviewing notes in the car as you travel from point A to point B should also be helpful. :-)

Lewis & Clark Rehearsals

After Friday's rehearsal (that is only for the speaking parts), all the students will need to attend. Please make every effort to have your child in attendance. We only have four rehearsals left - two rehearsals the week before Spring Break and two the week after... then the performances!!!! Oh my! Where has the time gone??

I have included the rehearsals' dates and times on the Upcoming Events to help you manage these important events! Thanks for your help!
