A few reminders........ 

*Please make sure that students bring winter gear to school. Gear is required for PE on Mondays and Tuesdays.

*There is no spelling this week. Spelling will handed out on Friday for next week. Our next spelling test will be NEXT Friday. 


*There is no school NEXT Monday for MLK Day. Please ensure your child is learning his/her spelling words. 


*Please send healthy snacks each day. Many kids get upset DAILY because they do not have a snack. I wish I could provide snack for my class but that is too expensive. The school provides snack on Tuesdays and Thursdays ONLY. 


*We will continue homework club for January and students that turn in every assignment will win prizes. Please keep in mined that my policy is homework may be 1 day late, then students are no longer eligible to win prizes. Math is always due the next day. Spelling is always due Friday mornings. Reading logs are always due the 1st of each new month.
