Some quick notes:
Friday is Spirit Day. Please join us for our morning assembly in the gymnasium at 8:15 AM.
Just a reminder that students will have math homework each night, including finishing any incomplete timed tests. Please continue to review your child's agenda to check for any notes, to write your own notes, and to ensure that they are writing the homework down consistently.
Thank you for sending in those box tops! These really add up in helping our school.
