October 20-24, 2014

 Our Buffalo Basket Auction is quickly approaching. The explanation letter went home this week with idea suggestions for donations for our basket. Our class, along with Mrs. Chase and Mrs. Klima's class, is creating a Family Night Basket. Please send in donations by October 23, 2014. 

Important Reminders:

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 each night.

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!
