Weekly Update

I cannot believe we are already half way through the third quarter! Progress Reports were due today. If you haven’t already done so, please login to Gradelink, print your child’s grades, and sign the print out. I have extended the due date by 1 day. Children who do not have their progress reports in tomorrow, will lose recess time.

Looking Ahead:

Easter will be here before you know it. The week before, we will be doing an activity in class called Resurrection Eggs. Each child must bring in an empty 1-dozen egg carton and 1 dozen plastic eggs (any color/s). If you have extra egg cartons, please bring in those as well. I will provide the rest of the materials for this project. Egg cartons and plastic eggs are due no later than Friday, March 18th.
