Notes from the teacher

Dear Parents,

This week I would like to encourage you to make sure your student is reading every night at home. When it comes to moving up in AR levels, nothing is better than practice, practice, practice! With the spelling bee coming up, if you would like your student to participate, I suggest looking up the spelling bee words posted on the school website, and practicing calling them out and having your student spell them out loud to you. This will be great practice for the spelling bee. When you are doing your weekly grocery shopping, be on a lookout for canned goods. Jones is doing a canned food drive the week of 9/15, so go ahead and start stocking up! As always, please email or call me if you have any questions or concerns about your student.
