Parents,

It is hard to believe that we are now in our third full week of school. The students are5 doing very well and I appreciate all of your support. As we progress into the school year things will begin to get more in depth therefore, I will need your continued support in making sure your child is completing all homework assignments and following the rules at school. Please work with your child each  night on practicing 'sight' words. The students must be able to recognize these words and read them on Friday of each week. We will introduce five new letters of the alphabet this week. Please work with your child on recognizing these letters at home. Please take the time to read with your child each night.

Thank you in advance for all that you do as a parent to help your child become a success!!! PRAISE YOUR CHILD for all of their accomplishments, no matter how small or big.
