I can't believe the 2017-2018 school year is already here.  I am looking forward to seeing all of you in just a few weeks.  Please keep reading and make sure you worked on your book report!!!  Please make sure all supplies and books ( hard cover and soft cover) are labeled with your son or daughters name.

Classroom wishlist: ( These are some items we can always use in the classroom if you have any extra that you can donate throughout the year)  
                                 Thank you!!!!

     - colored pencils
     - glue sticks
     - crayons
     - Drawing paper

  Just a few housekeeping items:

If your son or daughter are absent from school an absent note MUST be sent in upon returning to school to excuse the absence.
No nail polish may be worn and all shirts must be tucked in. ( I know this is hard for the little ones)
