Hope you all had a great weekend! We have finished our IOWA testing and the students were very excited to be finished. Therefore, this week, we will have spelling homework and a spelling test. I have previously sent home a list of our students for Valentines Day. Please have your child bring in a Valentine box and or bag for their valentines-due Thursday. Also, we are really running low on treasure box items. Any contributions would be greatly appreciated! Thank you again for your support!
