Home School Connection - Due Friday 1/13/23

Please check your child's backpack today for the 2nd Home School Connection assignment. I have also linked the materials below for your review. When completing the writing section, feel free to scribe for your child. When a child doesn't have to write down their thoughts, the conversation tends to be more meaningful and productive.
