Dear Parents,

Our cold read assignment, Soccer History will come home on Monday. This assignment is due on Friday. Please use the cold read procedure card sent home with your student last week to complete this assignment. Please review each step and check your student's work for accuracy. 

A volunteer sign up sheet for Founders' Day will be coming home in your child's binder on Wednesday! This is a great way to earn PI time! Founders' Day will be held on Friday, September 12th!

 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. 

Our lunch is every day from 11:12-11:37 in Cafeteria 1.

 PI Opportunities: If anyone is interested in PI opportunities, please send me an email or give me a call! Thank you for all of your help and support. I have PI projects that can be done in school or at home!
