Important Information:
  1. Our Kindness Challenge continues this week. Be on the lookout for kind acts at home!
  2. Lunch/Recess Monitors Needed – Can you offer 60-90 minutes during the day? If so, please contact Angela Reed at
  3. Please encourage your third grader to read a “just right” book (right at their independent level) every night. Studies show that the more kids read books right at their level, the better reader they become!
