End of semester testing
During the week of Dec. 10- 17 we will be administering end of semester tests in all subject areas. It is important that your child make every effort to be in class from now until then to take advantage of review, and study guides.
**The Box Tops for Education contest has been extended for another week. Please send in any that you may have at home. Thanks
Science Fair is Completed Celebration Lunch!!!!!!!
To celebrate what I think we all agree is a major accomplishment/huge bother/series of unpleasant clashes/great learning experience we are having a pizza party on Thursday, Dec. 6th. If your child would like to participate please send in $3.00 by Tuesday the 4th. This will cover the cost of pizza, chips, carrots and dip, drinks, plates and napkins. If your child would prefer to bring a lunch that day or buy from the cafeteria, that's fine, too, he or she can still participate in the celebration.
Nov./Dec. Reading Goal Deadline
The last day to take Reading Counts quizzes for this month is Dec. 14th. Please remind your student to get busy! They will be able to take a quiz on Maniac Magee as soon as we complete it:)
