*Forgotten math HW or out sick?  Here are the new printing instructions for ThinkCentral:  Think Central Printing Directions.docx


*Home access has been given to Think Central (Go Math & Journeys).  This is great for extra practice in math, reviewing our weekly story, or for printing pages when your child is absent or the page is forgotten.  The direct link can be found under Resources.

*Children should be using the Fact Dash website (under Resources) to practice their facts & increase their speed.

*As cooler weather approaches, the windows remain open & it can be chilly in the classroom.  School sweaters or gym sweatshirts may be worn over their uniform.

*A REMINDER THAT ALL TESTS (EXCEPT SPELLING & READING) NEED TO BE SIGNED & RETURNED!
