What a Great First Day!

August1

I enjoyed seeing you all today and am beyond excited about the year ahead!

Just a few reminders about materials for language arts class:

  • You will NOT need a separate binder for language arts…just a folder or part of a binder will do.
  • You will be keeping most of your papers in your class portfolio, and this collection of papers will REMAIN in class.
  • Make sure to have pencils, pens (blue/black and a bright color), highlighters, paper, AND a positive attitude :).

It’s going to be an awesome year!
