  • Frosting
  • Candy for Gingerbread Men

Reading Log Due Friday

Monthly Reading Log is Due on Friday! Did your child read and record at least 100 minutes each week?

Headphones/ Earbuds

4th Graders have access to a lot of great technology at Claxton. However- headphones are hard to keep around. For this reason (and sanitation) - I would love if each child had their own headphones or earbuds to use in class. The students can keep them in their bookbag in a ziploc/pouch- and take them out when they need them.

If you are able to donate an extra set for the class please do! If you are unable to send in headphones please let me know and I'll make sure your child has what they need. Thank you :)
