Weather-Animals in winter
I will be out of the classroom Monday through Friday next week. If you have any transportation changes or urgent communication during the day, please call the office. Mrs. Brooks will be subbing for me. She will write daily behavior in agendas and cover the normal curriculum. I will not send reading folders. However, the poetry folder should come home on Tuesday and homework may be in agendas as well. I will try to check my email once each day, but I can't guarantee it will be checked during school hours. However, I will be back on Friday to answer any emails at that time. I'll update pictures soon. I have lots of pictures from our Christmas celebrations to share with you.
