Happy Monday!

Hope you all had a good weekend! We are back to the hot weather, at least for a little while. Information about our fall field trip will be going home this week, but you can go ahead and put Thursday September 24th on your calendar if you would like to go! Plan on an all day thing.

-Eagle Cards: The next turn in date is Wednesday! Make sure to sell those cards!

-No School: We do not have school September 7 (Labor Day) and September 14 (Fair Day). We also have a delayed start on the 15. School will not start till 11:00

-Box Tops: Start sending in those box tops! The first turn in is the first Friday in October.

-Scholastic Book Club: At the bottom of this post, and in your child’s take home folder, is a letter about the Scholastic Book Club. Please read to see how you can help your child grow as a reader and help our classroom!


Thanks for all you do!
