This Week in Upper Elementary August 18, 2011

Thank you so much for a smooth first week! We are all happy to be back and happy to see you all back! If you have any questions, concerns, or just want to check in with us, please contact us at to set up a time and date to meet with us. We check the class email multiple times a day and will respond as soon as possible. You may also stop in for a quick chat between 7:45am and 8:30am and again between 3:15pm and 4:00pm.

A BIG thanks to everyone who donated supplies to the classroom--especially cleaning supplies. We want to make sure that each child has the following items:
    -pencil box
    -tennis shoes for P.E. on Tuesdays and Thursdays
    -re-useable water bottle

We are going to establish a regular routine of visiting the library and allowing students to check out books to be kept at school for reading and research. Please send your child's small key chain card to be kept at school for such visits by Friday, August 26, 2011.
