    Welcome back to school!!!  Here is to a wonderful year full of learning. 



    Homework and important dates are written in the Minder Binders each day. Every Friday we organize our binders together during our class meeting.  Please make sure your child is cleaning out their binders at the end of the week.  All spelling/vocabulary lists and vocabulary cards are to stay inside your child's binder until we have the test.  All tests and quizzes come home every Friday.


    Please make sure your child is completing their nightly reading of 20 minutes and filling in their reading log. The Reading Log is due each month.  This can be downloaded from the PTA website.  This is part of the nightly homework and will be counted for a reading grade.

     We are a peanut and nut free classroom. Please help keep us all safe by not bringing in any goodies for birthdays. For class parties, al items must be peanut and nut free. Thank you :)
