*Special Reminders*

  • You are welcome to come to our holiday party as long as you are VIPS approved and wearing your orange lanyard! No siblings please.

  • There are only 2 weeks left in this grading period. When we come back in January for the 3rd 9 weeks, there will be some grading changes. I will only read directions on tests and no example. I must also start taking off one point for each incomplete sentence, and for misspelled words copied from a word bank.

  • We are collecting money for a holiday gift for our amazing custodial and cafeteria staff this week!
