Test on Friday, September 23.


We will be starting our take home writing assignments this week. Each week, students will complete a brief writing assignment that they will present to the class on either Thursday or Friday. I will be sending home a more detailed description on Monday, September 19, along with student's assigned presentation day.

Scholastic Book Club orders are due this Friday, September 23.

Although the weather is still warm outside (woohoo!), it is a good idea that your child brings a sweatshirt to school. Our classroom has been a bit on the chilly side.

Check it out!

Every Friday, we will have one of our CF football players read aloud to our class. A big thanks goes out to Coach Bylsma for setting up this awesome opportunity!
