Completed work was sent home in your child’s agenda on Thursday.

Book orders were sent home on Thursday. If you would like to place an order, please do so by November 9th. You can order online by going to scholastic book clubs, select the parent tab then add my class code LHTDQ.

Remember to save and send in box tops. The school receives 10 cents for every box top we send in. My relatives save and mail me their box tops.
