Look for math flashcards in the take-home folders this week. We will add to these as the weeks go on, please review so the facts become memorized.


I am so disappointed in the amount of students who did not turn in an October reading log. I try to stress to the students that reading is very important. It is homework every day. There really should not be anyone who is unable to read 15 books in a month. Please impress upon your children to read each night. This will only make them stronger readers.
