The Count Down Has Begun!

I could already feel the excitement this morning from my homeroom students. As the first semester winds down, we are still full speed ahead for these last two weeks! Remember that if you have time in your busy schedules to see Rise of the Guardians before Monday, December 17th. We are beginning an author study focusing on WIlliam Joyce, who wrote the prologue to this movie. Again, this is not mandatory!

And don't forget your children are taking very important district assessments on December the 10th, 11th, 17th, and 18th. So make sure they are getting lots of rest the night before and eating a great breakfast to get their minds ready! They will do fabulous!

Thank you,
