Our field trip to MOSI is this Tuesday, April 14,2015. We will return about 4:45p.m. Please remind students we will follow rules and procedures while on the field trip. Please remember not to send any money with your student. I am looking forward to an exciting, educational fun-filled day.
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 on a daily basis after all homework assignments have been completed and checked.
