In this week’s Friday folder, permission slips for the South Visit on April 15 were sent home. Please return your signed permission slip as soon as possible. There is no cost for this field trip. A permission slip for Remember the Titans was also sent home in today’s Friday folder. Please send this back as soon as possible, too.
A green letter with information about this year’s 5th grade class gift and basketball shootout fundraiser was also sent home today. Please look this over and send back donations by March 11.
Progress Reports will be emailed home next Friday, March 6th. These get pushed through in waves, so they may come throughout the day. If you have not received your child’s progress report by the end of the day on Monday, March 9th, please let me know.
Please check with your student to see the status of his/her school supplies. Many students no longer have pencils, and they have been using pens during math, causing messy work when they make a mistake. Please send more pencils with your child as soon as possible.
