 Greetings Filone's Fabulous Fireballs,

 

 

 "Last Chance to Order Yearbook" sales flyers are coming home today with those students that did not purchase a yearbook earlier in the school year. Yearbooks will be on sale through February 12th!

 

There was a classlist sent home. I also have attached a copy below as a PDF Document. We will be having a Valentine Exchange on Friday, February 12th. If you are bringing in valentines, you must bring one in for every student in the class! Students will decorate a shoe box or bag at home to bring in with them on February 12th. Please look for this information in your child's take home folder along with my February newsletter. 

 

  I have extra group (class) photos from LifeTouch that are available for purchase. These will be sold on a first come first serve basis. They are $12.00 and can be purchsed using cash or check. Please make the check payable to LifeTouch and not made out to VCS.

 

Important Information:

 

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.
