Parent Notes:

1. Thank you for sending in healthy snacks to help with our snack time!

2. School begins at 8:00 a.m. If your child is late, he/she will need to be signed in at the school office. With our new security system, you will need to be buzzed in at the front door.

3. Your child should have math homework almost every night. He/She also needs to practice spelling words and reading words nightly. Together, you should be reading his/her library book and returning it when your child is ready to test.
