Word of the Week: INTEGRITY
I show integrity when I do what I think is right.

Please check your child's Blue Take Home Folder each day to check for mail, homework, and important information.


PLEASE SEND YOUR CHILD WITH A WATER BOTTLE!!! This helps a lot, so he/she does not have to leave the room when thirsty! Your child is also welcome to keep healthy snacks in our classroom to eat any time

Your child will have reading homework each night.  They are free to read anything they want as long as it is approved by you!

Science:  We are so busy!  We have been talking about what scientists do and why it is so important for them to ask quality questions to guide their studies.  We also planted seeds in the hopes that seedlings will sprout for the tower garden we are going to build!  Ask your child to share the science paper in his/her blue folder!
