Mrs. Hepburn's Class Newsletter
January 12, 2014
There are a few additions to the calendar this week: Wednesday the 3rd graders will take a climate survey, Thursday they will meet with the Crider Center and on Friday 2nd grade will meet with the Crider Center. The Crider Center visits schools to conduct bullying assemblies each year. It's an interactive lesson and the students typically enjoy their message.
Reports cards were sent home on Friday. The report card is yours to keep, but please return the envelope signed; we will use it each quarter. If you have any questions or concerns do not hesitate to contact me.
