Conference Sign-Up

I sent out a link to the Conference Sign Up sheet over the weekend to everyone. I have attached it below for everyone again if they need it. Please sign up for a time so that we can discuss your child's progress so far, and goals they have for the remainder of the year. If there is not a time that you are available to meet, please email me or call the school, and we can set up another time. Thanks so much.

Valentine's Day Tea

The students and I will be having a Valentine's Day Tea on Friday afternoon. I will be asking students on Monday who would like to bring what to the tea. It will be very simple. All of the students are able to bring in valentines for the other students in the class, as long as they bring in one for every student in the class. I will send home a class list with everyone on Monday as well. The students will need to have their Valentine Robot project completed by Thursday, and that will also be their Valentine holder on Friday.
