Have a great break!

While I want all students to enjoy a well-deserved break, I think it would be a good idea to continue to read, and practicing on ALEKS and IXL-ELA isn't a bad idea either.

All students who did not have a face to face conference must show their parents/guardians their presentation, discuss end of the year goals, and returned the signed sheet on April 5th when school resumes.

Finally, as we near the end of the year, we are running low on some supplies:

1) Markers, highlighters, and Sharpies
2) Pencil erasers (we have plenty of pencils, just no erasers)
3) Tissue boxes

We are not in dire need of any of the above, but if you have any of these lying around the house, we would very much appreciate a donation!
