Questions about April first?  Ask a teacher!

This week is the first of 3 mandated furlough days for teachers.  Your child’s school day was canceled by the Chicago Public Schools appointed board.  No school Friday.

Please have students complete and turn in their writing assignments on Thursday this week.  There are still many students not completing home assignments.  If there is some obstacle in getting the work done please speak to your child’s classroom teacher before this negatively impacts their overall grade.

Plase consider donating some Kleenex or a snack.

Field trip is next week on the 31st to the Nature Museum.
