All classwork (CW) and homework
(HW) for the week are located on the Monday for that week. Please print
that page out and place it where your child can see it so that they are making
sure that they are accomplishing all of their work. I have also posted many
PDF files below that contain information that has also been handed out in
class. If your child loses or misplaces something, please look below for
a replacement. If it is something that you do not see there, just ask.
If you donate something for the
