Torres & Avirett 18-19

Week of 8/20/18

Looking for a few helping hands

Next Tuesday is the 4th Day of 4th Grade. We are looking for a couple of creative parents that can work magic with butcher paper and make a backdrop for our team on Monday so that we can take individual pictures of the kids on Tuesday. We could also use help taking pictures on Tuesday. If you can help out,​ please let Mr. Avirett or Ms. Torres know.

A Note from Mr. Avirett

I have given the students an activity to be completed over the weekend. I asked them to take their writing journal home to decorate. We will be using the writing journal everyday this year. The goal is for them to have something that is personal to them, which will allow them to feel comfortable enough to share all their thoughts.


Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions. I will do my best to check my email at some point over the weekend to address any wonderings.
