Hello students and parents!
Please do not forget to bring in the $5 for pizza and sign up for one additional item (side dish, plasticware, beverages, etc.). Your son or daughter has probably already signed up for something - check in with them or email me at: email@example.com to verify. Our class Christmas party will be on Friday @ 11am. Students may bring in non-perishable additional items before then to store in the classroom if they would like. For break, students have a ready long to complete each week, in addition to 7 days of their choice wherein they are asked to play mathletics & ticket-to-read for 30 minutes each. Please ensure that your child is completing the necessary logs daily.
