Reminders:

We have added a new addition to our Homework page. Under the 'Important Dates' section you will find work for your child if he/she is absent. You are able to print out the worksheets/notes/missing work form from this tab. This should help both you and your child keep up with any missing work while he/she is out for illness or vacations. If books are still needed, please send an email with the pickup plan (sibling/front office, etc). We are hoping this helps and that everyone takes advantage of the opportunity to keep up with work missed while out! We will keep the work posted for a week.

If you have any questions, let your homeroom teacher know.


Monday Folder News: Parents, please remember to sign the Monday folder each week and review the graded papers with your child. Please send the papers that are in the "Sign and Return" side of the folder back to school on Tuesday. Thank you.


Thank you for your continued support!
