Grades Updated Online!

Please visit the Grade Book Info page on my website for details about how to view student grades online. There are also details on that page about what to do if students have missing work and the procedures for how to deal with it. The first graded work packet will come home this Friday. Feel free to let me know if you have any questions!

Field Trip: Neighborhood House

We will be going on our first trip to Neighborhood House on Tuesday, October 20th! Like I mentioned before, we will be splitting the class into two groups, and only one group will go serve at a time. I haven't decided on the groups yet... it will likely be based on who returns the waivers to me the quickest. Please read the important information about Neighborhood House HERE, which includes the waiver you need to print and sign. If you don't have a working printer at home, let me know and I can print it at school and send it home. Feel free to let me know if you have additional questions!
