Just a quick reminder that students do have 50 minutes of Mobymax assigned as weekly homework.

Also I have been putting grades up on Educonnect. Please check your parent portal weekly as well as checking students yellow folders for incomplete assignments. There are students with missing assignments as well as missing homework assignments.

I have sent some assignments home to be redone, signed, and returned to school. I have not seen some of them come back which leads me to believe they are not getting home to parents.

Thank you for your continued support. Enjoy your day.

On Thursday, February 14th, the students in grade 5 may pass out valentines to their classmates. Please follow the below guidelines for Valentine's Day.

1. Students must have a school and age appropriate card for ALL 15 students in the class if they are passing out valentines.

2. The valentines are NOT to be addressed to a particular student. The student should just fill in the front section of the card.

3. Any treats or candy with the valentine cards MUST BE PEANUT AND TREE NUT FREE. All cards and treats will NOT be opened at school. They will be sent home for students to enjoy there.

Thank you for your support and cooperation to make this class activity enjoyable for ALL the students.
