Hello Parents!

Reminders:

  • Vocab quiz on Friday this week! Rdg. log due Fri. this week, and vocab hw due Tues.
  • Registration packets due back ASAP for next year! 🙂
  • The 3 required AR books to be read for 3rd quarter are fiction books. Students have until the end of the quarter and can test on more than three books if they want to try for a higher score in the grade book. I will enter 0’s for any unfinished AR scores this week, since it is already halfway through 3rd qtr.
