Summer Reading Party
Mrs. Reichen in the library asked us to remind parents to have their children bring in their Summer Reading Challenge forms to her as soon as possible so that students can participate in the party this Thursday. Please talk to her if you have any questions.

Student Planners (Assignment Books)
My students are expected to write their homework in their planners every day. If they do not have something written in their planners for a particular day, it is because they have not been fulfilling their duty as a student! Please check in with them each night, asking to see their planner.

Weekly Newsletters and Missing Work Lists
I will be posting Weekly Newsletters on my website on Mondays. I will send out email reminders, with a link to the post. Regarding Missing Work Lists, I will send home sheets with the students weekly for you to view.
