Weekly Reminders...

*If your child has a summer birthday we will celebrate them on Monday!  Send in a treat of your child's choice.

*There is a half day on Wednesday, 12:00 dismissal.  No snacks or lunch are needed as we will have our end of the year celebration today.

*Thursday is the last day of school!  We have Mass at 8:00 and dismissal is at 11:00.  Eat a good breakfast!  No snacks or lunch needed today!

*The children have been doing a great job remembering if they are buying lunch or not.  Notes are no longer needed unless you are more comfortable or need to tell me specific things regarding lunch/snack purchases.

*Remember that all paper stories do count as a homework assignment when they come home.  The child should be reading it to someone in the house.  The adult that it was read to should be signing or initialing it on the front cover.  It gets sent back to school for credit.  At the end of each trimester it will count as an oral reading grade.

*READING PRACTICE and  MATH PRACTICE…Please see the "useful links" tab to access these 2 sites.  These are the websites that connect to our reading program and math book we use in class everyday.  There are great things on there to practice with at home!
