Chaperones, please meet in our classroom at 8:20 am with a bag that will fit 2-3 lunches. Students will place their lunch in your bag.

Please have your child wear their gym uniforms for this trip. We are going to have a great day!

In addition to your child’s written homework, please read to your child and/or have your child read to you for at least 20 minutes each night.

**Please remind your child to empty his/her completed and corrected papers from the H folder each night.
