Classroom News

Hope you had a nice fall break. I enjoyed the time to rest and refresh. School Pictures will be this Thursday.  Flyers were sent home before fall break.

Parent-Teacher Conferences went well and I was glad to visit with those who came about your child’s progress.

Next should be a classroom celebration for Halloween. I’ll let you know about costumes. I will try to keep you informed as I become aware of activities.

Keep reading and practicing sight words.


     Keep reading and practicing sight words.
