Helpful Hints:

Please initial all of your child's homework in the upper right hand corner of their paper after you have reviewed each assignment for completeness, accuracy and neatness. Agenda planners need to be initialed on a daily basis after all homework assignments have been completed and checked.  

AR: Please encourage your child to read each night so they can meet their goal every week.

PI Opportunities: If anyone is interested in PI opportunities, please send me an email or give me a call! I have PI projects that can be done in school or at home! 

Box Tops for Education: Our class is collecting Box Tops for Education and could really use your support. Just look for the Box Tops logo on hundreds of grocery and household product, clip the label, and send them in to our classroom. We are trying to earn "free" money for our school (each label is worth 10 cents). So before you throw away any of your used items, please check to see if there is a box top label you can clip for our class. Thank you in advance for your support! 

Dates to Remember:

"The essence of teaching is to make learning contagious, to have one idea spark another." ~~ Marva Collins
