Week of Noverber 6th

FYI:

  • Please have your child bring in a pinecone next week. We are going to make owls!
  • Tuesday is a professional learning day for teachers. Students will have the day off.
  • We have a media lesson this week.
  • Thursday is the half way point in this term.
  • I will send home A/R reports on Wednesday.
  • Our snack basket for students who forget to bring one is getting low.  If you have any extra snacks or if you would buy a bag of pretzles or cheerios and divide it into snack bags we would appreciate it.  We have been having lots of students who are forgetting their snack and it’s a long time until 12:21!  Thanks!
