September 17th- 21st


  • I will be out of town this week. Please call the school office if you need anything or send me an email. I will get back to you as soon as possible. Mrs. Pam Jones will be subbing Monday- Wednesday. She will be taking over the class when I start maternity leave after Christmas. I truly believe she will do an excellent job. She is a retired elementary teacher, and will be coming and helping in our room often to get to know the students and our routines. 
  • Since I will be out this week, graded papers for this week will go on home on Tuesday of next week instead of Monday. I will need some time to catch up on grading. I will also update the blog when I get back in town over the weekend. Mrs. Pam will pass out papers from last week on September 17th. Please be sure to sign your child's folder.
