Hello Families! ​As the year winds down, I wanted to let you know that your child brought home a bag of books this week. These books have been used for several years in our small reading groups. Our district has adopted a new reading series since we acquired these, and we no longer use them. I wanted to be able to send home some books with  your children to enjoy over the summer to continue to enrich themselves. We don't want them to lose academic ground over the vacation. So enjoy these books with your children! ...Continue Reading

Good Morning! Each grade level has their own sign-up sheet. Please block out the times that you wish to take breaks by "signing up" under your name with your email address. This will block the time out so parents cannot schedule at that time. (As a reminder, the district hours are from 11:30-7...) I tried starting at 7:30, but it added too many options for it to work. *If I made a mistake, please let me know ASAP. Here is a blurb to send to families: (please wait to send until Thursday so everyone has a chanc ...Continue Reading
