Several students are out of pencils at school. Please ask your child if they are in need of pencils and/or other supplies. (crayons, glue sticks, etc.) I have a few extras on hand, yet our supplies are running low. Thanks so very much!

FOLDERS & AGENDAS:
Students are reminded daily to bring their student agenda books & folders. This allows you to see work they have completed, newsletters, and additional announcements.
Please initial their agenda books daily as they given time to record their assignments from the board. Students are encouraged to place their work in their folders for you to review.
We have an allotted study time at the end of the day and if students utilize this time wisely, they should have little to no written homework.
THANK YOU PARENTS FOR TAKING THE TIME TO SIGN STUDENT AGENDA BOOKS!
If you have not signed up for the Remind 101 Text Service, please take a moment to do so.
