Fourth and fifth grade both need to write down their goal for the first trimester for class tomorrow.
Also, $5 is due for homework planners.
Welcome back fifth and fourth grade parents!
I am so excited to be back in the fourth and fifth grade this year for Language Arts and Social Studies. We eased into a nice half day, although it was a little hot! Please bring in water bottles as the first days of school tend to be warm and this cuts down on missed class time with trips to the water fountain.
I will be adding more information to this page as the week progresses. For now, the only instructions for tonight are get a good night's sleep and have a healthy breakfast tomorrow. Oh, and stay cool!
