This week students will complete a book report (Due Friday) instead of the reading contract. Pizza Hut Book-It program is officially over.

Remember we have a field trip coming up. All field trips are a required part of our curriculum. We create learning opportunities that reach beyond the event and expect rich language development opportunities through these experiences. Please let us know right away if your child cannot attend for some reason.
