News Flash
Week of January 27, 2020 

If you send your child to school wearing boots, please be sure to send in shoes to wear all day long. We are carpeted in the classrooms. Also, our room is too chilly for just lightweight tee shirts.


The following pages (please locate all 4) 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.

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.

Reminder: I have a severe allergy to artificial fragrances. Even though the fragrance smells nice it triggers a migraine and I lose my voice. Fabric softeners (especially Snuggle air-borne), colognes, and perfumes are the general triggers. Axe products are a problem, also.
