Week of November 12, 2018
                     

Don't forget to send in a white tee shirt that will fit over your child's clothes. It is for our Native American Night performance. It will get dyed, so please write your child's name in permanent Sharpie, so it gets returned to him/her.

 


The following pages will show you what we hope to cover this week. It is not "in stone" due to changes in our day for assemblies, recess  breaks, substitute teachers as needed, etc.

Please click on the tabs to the left. This website is in lieu of student planners.


Please be sure to go through your child's backpack and purple folder. 

Textbooks, library books, Pack and Reads, workbooks, and their journal are welcome to go home every evening BUT they must be back in class everyday.
Unfinished papers must also be sent back in the next morning when they are completed in the evening. Unfinished assignments that come home are a signal to you that your child is not finishing work in class.


The menu list on the left should show more subjects, but for some reason doesn't list them. Click on one and look for the others, the pages seem to be sub-pages of other pages.

 

Mrs. Briegel's email has all of the weekly news, please be sure to read her updates.

Please remind your child to dress for recess! It is getting pretty chilly. They may not need mittens and a hat just getting out of the car, but during recess they will be happy to have them!
