A Note from Mrs. Myerson

This week is another HEAVY review and testing week. Students will be assessed on end of unit skills and we will also be completeing our Running Records, which assess students reading level progress.

On Monday a project is being sent home that will be due this Friday, January 15th. Students will need to look at the Weather Forecast each day of this week and record the weather and temperature. Instructions are included on the front page of the project.
