Specials Changes

Next week for college/career week we are planning on having guest speakers speak with our 3rd,4th and 5th grade classes. In the past we had our speakers in the afternoon to speak with our students. This year I would like for them to start at 8:00-9:30 so that they can return to work after their presentations. I have assigned each grade level the following days for their guest speakers:

January 13th-5th grade from 8:00-9:30 ( 5th grade will switch their specials time with 3rd grade).

January 14th-4th grade from 8:00-9:30 (4th grade will switch their specials time with 3rd grade).

January 15th-3rd grade from 8:00-9:30 (3rd grade is back to their original specials time J).

Geography Bee - Tuesday, Jan. 12th
