Mrs. Shauna Chase « Teacher Connection / Documents / Calendar

Dear Parents,

 As we tick closer to that long December Break, please help your student stay focused on completing assignments.  Truly, I know there are so many activities after 2:30, I will keep homework relevant and efficient.  Each student already has their Cold Read, as well as their Spelling and Vocabulary words, it might be helpful to get a head start on those over the weekend. Also, we have 2 weeks left to reach our AR Goal....please help them by encouraging nightly reading.

Also, the Holiday Party Planning Sheet.  I appreciate the volunteers I have in the "book" but can surely use 1 or 2 more.  I appreciate your time and help so very much.

 

 

 

All Best,

 

Mrs. Chase

Important Reminders:

Please sign your child's AR Tracking Sheet that is located in the plastic sleeve of your child's green take home folder. It is the Third week for the 2ndst 9 weeks AR Goal.  Let's get it done!

Please initial all of your child's homework 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.
