OTHER INFORMATION....

  • Today was picture day! If your child missed the photos today, retakes will be available. I will post the date as I am notified.
  • Homework begins today! We are having a third grade meeting to set expectations and explain the process today in class. Your child will be bringing an informational sheet home as well. These sheets are due weekly, with next Monday being the first due date. iPads will be going home Monday and Tuesday this week in order to assist the students with their homework. These iPads are being monitored by Mrs. Bealka, our technology specialist, and the only apps allowed are those that the teachers here at school have added to the iPads. No App Store downloads are allowed at home. These iPads need to be returned the next school day. iPads going home will be determined by the homework assigned each week and their necessity at home. Thanks for your support at home on this.
  • Fundraiser forms were due today. Thanks to those who have sent them in already! If your child has not sent them in yet, please do so as soon as possible. Thanks much!
