Hello Families, Fall Break is next week!  We will not have school October 8 - 12th!  I hope everyone will have an enjoyable time away from the classroom.  I've asked the kids to stay engaged in reading, writing, and math activities.  It's so important to keep those skills fresh.  So if you're able to get away with the family, how about making sure that your student reads a book in the long car ride?   Also remember, please help the homeless in our community by donating socks for Soc ...Continue Reading
