Coming Up

This week is our last week of the 2nd 9 weeks as well as the first semester!!! Time flies, right? With that being said, next week your child will come home with a new take home folder and homework folder as well as a book to read!! I know your students are excited to show you what they can do. The home work folder will go home every Monday, but does not need to be returned until Friday of each week. I have your children divided into groups for their reading books. I have Monday through Friday groups, depending on which group your child is in depends on what day they bring their books back. For example, if your child is in the Monday group, your child will bring their book back on Mondays and will receive a new book.


*As it is officially winter, we are having more chilly days. Please make sure your child is prepared for these cold days. We do go outside even when it is cold. Many students are not bringing a jacket or wearing clothing that is appropriate for being outside. Thank you for your cooperation!
