Welcome Back & Happy New Year!
We are about at the half-way mark of the school year.
Wow! Where does the time go?
We have a lot coming up in the next few weeks. Please be sure to take note of what we are currently studying and the upcoming tests that are scheduled before the end of the quarter.
Also, winter is here! Please make sure your child comes to school appropriately dressed for the changing weather. Be sure to write your child's name in their jackets and sweaters. Thank you so much!
We will resume sending home words for review and practice starting next week. Students will bring home a new list of words in their agenda.
