4th Grade Parents,

Don't forget to come out this Thursday night for the Lighthouse Project. The short PTA meeting will begin at 6:30 and students will share their projects with you after the meeting. Can't wait to see you there!

Books and Beyond Updates

Attention Kindergarten classes, 1st grade classes and Mrs. Brush's class.... you all read over 5,000 books during Pump Up the Volume contest this year! Great job, Pandas. All students will receive a free book (pre-determined) at the book fair this month for all your hard work.

Please note that you will receive an additional tracking sheet with a half sheet of paper attached with an updated total number of sheets submitted to date. This will include all sheets submitted by the teacher (if any).

Keeping reading and learning kids. You are doing a great job!
