With a second day off, it’s a great time to wash jackets, backpacks, hats, gloves, shoes, etc. You can also wipe down lunch boxes, binders, etc. w/ cleaning wipes. Help us fight illnesses at schools such as colds & the flu!

In case you need a copy of the directed reading packet… DR Chapter 13_14 packet-1x9s6dt
