We’ve completed our sixth month of grade two! This class is excellent thanks to your child. The following are some messages aimed to help your youngster have a successful year with us.
1. We still have some families that have not provided their child with headphones for computer use. The programs we use in class require headphones.
2. Be sure to clip and save the Boxtops for Education for the products you buy.
Thanks in advance for your attention to these notes. I continue to enjoy this year and will give your child the best I can.
