Newsletter: Week 16 of 37

January 6 - 10, 2014

   Thank you so much to all of the parents and students for all of the wonderful Christmas gifts our family received! Jen and I were overwhelmed with the generosity and love we felt when opening each and every one. :-)

   We are back on track this week, after a long break! Because we were unable to finish the book reports before the end of 2013, that will be our main goal after relearning classroom rules and expectations in this new year. It will be great to see all of you tomorrow. Make it a great week, everyone!

Report Cards

The final report cards for the first trimester will be emailed out on Friday, January 10th. If you have questions or feedback for me, please let me know.

New Trimester!

January also marks the beginning of the second trimester, which will please many students (and parents) who have been trying to keep up with missing work. All students will be starting out this new term with a clean slate. As of now, none of the students have missing work! Let's be sure to encourage good study habits and keep academic work a priority in this new year.

Person of the Week

Isaac Nelson!
