*There will be no school on Tuesday, December 15th.
*I will be sending out the last Scholastic magazines for the year on Monday. If you would like to buy anything for your child for Christmas, feel free to send me a message and we can work something out. Due to the timing, I will be putting the deadline for this Friday, December 4th.
*Due to the diversity in the previous tests, I will be trying something new. For upcoming Religion tests, I will be testing one chapter at a time. Each child will be bringing their Religion book home to review the highlighted words and concepts to then be tested on it (after 4 lessons). For math, each child will be getting a packet of papers based off of the classwork we complete. It is to be used as a guide outside of the classroom. Hopefully these will be better assets to the students in lieu of the study guides. ELA lessons will be staying the same.
*After several introductions with center activities, we will be participating in some for Math and ELA reinforcement.
Thank you and God Bless,
