Please help your student choose and read books from the AR reading list so that they can take the corresponding test at school. We will be setting goals and rewards for completing tests.
Information about parent/teacher conferences will be sent out tomorrow, Monday the 12th. I will be asking parents to give their first and second choice for a conference time. Please send the sign-up sheet back to school as soon as possible. I will send your time slot home with your student on Wednesday the 14th. If we have met previously for a conference or home visit, you do not need to sign up for a conference time unless you feel that you need to.
