Important Reminders:

Just a reminder that our Intermediate Center Open House will be held on Thursday, September 4th @ 6:00 PM.

Our picture day is on Thursday, September 4th! Uniforms are required.

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.

A volunteer sign up sheet for Founders' Day will be coming home in your child's red folder! This is a great way to earn PI time! Founders' Day will be held on Friday, September 12th! We are in great need of colored spray hair paint for our Founder's Day Booth! Walmart and Target normally will be selling this in the Halloween aisle. Please send in all receipts for your donations so that I may give you the correct amount of PI. Thank you for your continued support.

 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!
