Notes from the teacher:

Ö   Your child will bring a daily folder home each day and this will be used for teacher, parent, and student communication. Notes, lunch money, homework, and school news, will be included.

Ö   This year your child will be able to bring an individual snack to school (optional). We have designated a time during the day that is appropriate so that learning is not interrupted.

Ö   PARENTS OF GIRLS: When sending your sweetheart to school in a dress/skirt, please allow her to wear shorts under her dress.

Ö   This week we will continue Chapter 8.

Ö   Parents please read papers that go home from school. They include important information in regards to inclement weather and other events that go on throughout the school year.

*We will go over rules and procedures to get students back in the routine of things after our long snow break.
