Mrs. Melissa Spell « Teacher Connection / Documents / Calendar

Dear Students and Families,

 Our Student Celebration will be held Friday, May 20th from 12:25-1:15 in our classroom. 

Please remember Brain Pop Jr., https://jr.brainpop.com/, is a great resource for students to use at home. To enhance their learning, please have them review the videos on grammar, time, addition, subtraction, multiplication, cause and effect, main idea, sequencing, and theme. 

Students have their log in information for Think Central (science and math) and Connect Ed (language arts and social studies) glued on the first page of their agenda.

 

 Our lunch is from 11:34-11:59.
