Parent Notes


THESE IS NO MATH VIDEO HOMEWORK THIS WEEK!


Please remember to charge you child's iPad at home each night. We use the iPad a lot at school and it is difficult when the iPad has limited charge or no charge.


CAN YOU HELP? We would like to celebrate after our program with an ice cream treat. I need some volunteers to donate ice cream. We have purchased ice cream cups from Walmart in the past and it works REALLY well. We need about 75 cups of ice cream. Please let me know if you would like to help by purchasing a package or two. They come in chocolate, vanilla, and I think strawberry. Here is a picture as an example. They sell these at the Woodbury location.
