Students and Parents,

I hope everyone is doing well. I am looking forward to warmer weather!

This month the students will participate in an "All Edmond" March Book Madness. Each week we will go through one round and students may vote on their favorite books. Check out our bracket in this newsletter. At the end of the month, we will have a favorite book chosen from all the middle school students in Edmond.

Reminder: Please return your library books. If you have lost a book, use Spring Break as a great time to look for that book. Let me know if you still can't find it.

  • Don't forget to charge your Chromebook every night.

  • Close tabs that you are not using; the more tabs that are open--the slower your Chromebook will be.
