Days 9 through 13!

Parents please provide your child with a water bottle (WITH SPORT LID) to keep on their desk.

If you have not paid your school fee($85) please do so as soon as possible.

I want to thank all of you who are regularly checking the take-home-folders and signing the calendar.  I missed a few stamps this past week because students forgot to turn in the folders in the morning, but we are getting the hang of it!

Our first field trip is scheduled for October 30 to the Children’s Farm at the Center in Palos Park.

Scholastic Book orders: This is an optional source for inexpensive books.  You are in no way obligated to purchase through these advertisements.  All orders can be placed on line or through the teacher with a check or money order payable to Scholastic Books.  No cash.

Please contact me if you have some time to volunteer in the classroom. Please consider donating a classroom healthy snack (no nuts please).  Please consider donating to the school Warrior Store.
