Pirate Points from Mrs. Lee's Class

Week of September 18, 2013

Library

This is our semester to have guidance, rather than library. We will usually visit the library every week to switch out library books. The library has been closed quite a bit due to Ipad deployment in the upper grades. We will go to the library tomorrow, Thursday 9/19. It is best for your child to get in the habit of keeping his/her library book in the book bag to make sure it's always there for library day.

Cooler Temperatures

With the temperatures finally beginning to cool off a bit, your child may want to keep a sweater or sweatshirt in his cubby or book bag. Also, our classroom is often chilly so having something warm on hand would be a good idea.
