A few reminders...


  1. A new reading log will come home next week. This one is more user-friendly.
  2. Please sign your child’s PRIDE Binder each night.
  3. Finally, there is a new assessment in the PRIDE Binder. We did an awesome job on our Summative Math Test, so give your kiddo a high five!
  4. Spelling homework will come home this week, however there will be no ASSIGNED words to study. Be on the lookout for a letter explaining our spelling program.
