April 20, 2015
Our field trip to MOSI was a huge success. The students enjoyed many hands on activities and experienced winds up to 78mph in the wind tunnel.
Pictures or picture money is due by April 29th.
Usernames and Passwords for Connected and ThinkCentral have been placed on labels and can be found in the front of your child's agenda! You now can access to our Language Arts, Math, Science and Social Studies books and online materials. I will attach directions below for each as a PDF. If you are having any difficulty accessing these materials online at home, please let me know.
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.
