 Greetings Filone's Fabulous Fireballs,


Important Information:


Just a reminder that in support of "STOMP OUT BULLYING WEEK" students are asked to wear a blue uniform shirt to school on Monday, October 5th.

We are very excited about our upcoming field trip to SeaWorld on Thursday, November 5th! The cost of the trip is $50 for each student and includes admission to the park, lunch and transportation. All payments and consents forms are due no later than Thursday, October 8th by 6:00 PM.


 Username and Passwords for ThinkCentral (online math and science access) and ConnectEd (online reading and social studies access)  can be located in the front of your child's agenda planner. Directions were sent home on how to access your textbooks online. They can also be located as a PDF Documents below. 


My Open House Powerpoint is located below for you as a PDF Document. You may refer back to it at anytime to review our classroom policies and procedures. Thank you for all of your support!


Important Reminders:

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. Your child's behavior number will be written daily in their agenda.

Your child is permitted to bring a water bottle with them to school each day to keep at their desk. Please make sure it has a lid that can be closed tightly to keep any spills from happening.



Our lunch is every day from 11:12-11:37 in Cafeteria 1.
