Hello Families,

Just a reminder that we have our field trip to Elm Fork on April 16th. Please send in permission slips and $7.00 cash by Monday. About half of the class has returned their money and slips, thank you! We would also love to have a couple more parents that can chaperone. At this time we have three but we really need five.

We have many important dates in April. Please make a note of the following:

I have created a new website for our class. The links are the same as on our schoolweb page but this Google site is a little easier to navigate. Please bookmark this page for your child to work on activities at home, such as Think Through Math, Envision, and other links that support our curriculum.
