Week of January 14, 2019

Kids Against Hunger information went home last week. This is a great opportunity for our students to learn the importance of giving back.

January to April is always a great time for learning. Your child will grow a lot during these next few months.

Remember~ if the temperature is 20° or above, students will go outside for recess. Take a peek before your child leaves the house. Are they dressed warm enough to play outside? Also, make sure your child's coat and accessories are marked. It is crazy how many coats, hats, and mittens are in the Lost & Found! If you are missing something, you may want to come in and take a look                  

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.


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.
