Friday Announcements

Good Afternoon,

I have posted and input all quiz grades from this week and last. I saw an improvement in grades also due to studying over break. Please continue to study with students at home on taught during school. If you ever need activities or information please ask I have a plethora of materials to use. Studying at home tremendously helps the students! Please encourage your student to continue to pay attention and complete work during class, I know after a break it takes some getting used to again and we have a 3 day weekend again so please encourage and guide them to continue the good work in school. We are at the mid-point of our school year and if you can our class is in need of pencils, erasers, glue sticks, and individual candy for daily incentives.
