This Week's Lessons

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday. With the short week, I will not be sending out homework. However, please remember to help your child set a January At-home Reading Goal and read together most nights. I cannot emphasize enough how important nightly reading is to your child's continued success and reading development. Report cards will be sent home on Friday. Please look over your child's report card, sign and send it back sometime next week. If you have any questions, please contact me. Happy New Year!
