AHOY Filone's Savvy Sailors,

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.

Accelerated Reader Testing will begin on Monday, August 18th between the hours of 7:30am-2:30pm! AR goals will be set next week!

A volunteer sign up sheet for Founders' Day will be coming home in your child's red folder next week! This is a great way to earn PI time! Founders' Day will be held on Friday, September 12th! We are in need of one large pop up tent!

 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 11:08-11:33 in Cafeteria 1.
