Important Information:

  • Thank you so much to those that volunteered to come read to our class this past Friday. The students really enjoyed your stories! Also, thanks to those that came to volunteer at our Roman Adventure Day. We had so much fun participating in activities that went along with our Mythology Unit.
  • We would like to begin having one guest reader come each Friday to read to our classes. The kids enjoy it so much and it is such a great example for them to see you as adults reading! Please email Ms. Johnson to let her know if you are interested!
  • Each week in Reading class, students complete a packet of activities to learn vocabulary words. The program we use is called Wordly Wise. There is a test at the end of the week where Ms. Johnson has allowed them to use their word lists to help them out. This week, there will be no word list to help! Please encourage your students to study their words each night to prepare for Friday's test.
  • Mrs. Barkley is in need of sandwich size Ziploc bags and colored pencils. Any donations are greatly appreciated.
  • Outer Banks attendees: Our final payment is due no later than next Friday, March 27th. Also, some important forms will be sent out this week. Please stay on the lookout and send them back ASAP!
  • Oh! I'm sure many of you are wondering... We are not having to make up any of the school days that we missed for snow! :)
