2. MAP testing begins next week.

3. Book orders are due by this Friday.

4. We have P.E. on Tuesday and Thursdays.  Please make sure your child is wearing appropriate shoes!

Homework was sent home today.  I attached a laminated hundreds chart for each student to keep either at home or in the plastic sheet protector in their B.E.E. folders.  This is to help with math homework.

Thank you for sending missing paperwork and fees back to school so quickly.  Our very responsible group of kiddos bombarded me with paperwork on Friday morning!
