When we return from break, we will start on Chapter 3…Multiplication.

If you are going with us, please meet us in the PLC or the Atrium. EVERYONE going needs to bring a sack lunch and drink! I would ask that you NOT buy food at the zoo. We will all be eating together for lunch. We will have some time in the gift shop, but it is between child and parents how much, if any, money is brought! Don’t forget to count in tax!

SNOW DAYS/DELAYS AND DRESS CODE (from Mrs. Floyd)
As stated at Back to School Nights, we will follow Franklin Community School closings and delays. We will make sure to send an email, text (if you have it set up in Jupiter) and our phone message will relay the news. Franklin Schools will post on regular TV stations (ABC, NBC, CBS).
Also, this is a reminder to please check the Handbook for clarification on dress code. Please make sure your child/ren are wearing a belt for grades 4 -8, girls are wearing the correct plaid (solid color skirts, skorts, and jumpers are not allowed), Mass uniforms must be worn on Thursdays (see handbook for exact specifications), socks should be visible and the correct color (blue, khaki, white or black). All regulations are listed in the handbook which can be found on our website. If you have any questions, let us know.
**SCHOOL/HOMEWORK – Please make sure your child is doing his/her school work AND turning it in on time! I have a few students who have not been completing work that is sent home to complete! It will make a big difference in their grades on their report cards! Please let me know if you have any questions!
