Happy Monday to all! The boys and girls are very excited about working on their 1st quarter book project (Book in a Box Project). Information, guidelines, and rubrics for this project were sent home on Sept. 9th. Please make sure that your child does not wait until the last minute to begin their project. They must read the entire chapter book that was chosen. I’ve extended the deadline; it is now due on Friday, October 4th.
