TEACHER NOTES –
**We will have Mass two times this week! Tuesday is a Holy Day for All Saints’ Day, and our regular Mass on Thursday. We will celebrate the baptism of one of our 2nd graders during Thursday’s mass!
**We will be visited by the Franklin 4-H kids on Tuesday! They will talk to the classes about joining 4-H! Be sure to look for information to come home!
**I am not sure if I have shared this or not, but I wanted to share with you a website that we use in the computer lab that will link you to several other websites. This way you just have to remember one. The website is www.portaportal.com. Once there, on the right side, log in as “guest” with the password being “kdinkel”. This is a great way for the kids to practice math facts with the games and websites we use in computer lab. These should all be “safe” websites, but please let me know if you ever see something that concerns you. I have used this websites for many years, and haven’t had trouble, but you never know with the internet!
