SeaWorld fieldtrip forms have been sent home. Just a reminder that we will be going to SeaWorld on November 7th! Payment and consent forms are due no later than Thursday, October 9th. SeaWorld fieldtrip forms can be found below as a PDF if needed.
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!
