I will be sending our first weekly homework packet home this week. You will find the packet in the second sleeve in your student’s take home folder. Homework is due this Friday, I still like to check the homework everyday but I will take a grade on Friday. Upon requests from many parents I will be sending home a handwriting practice sheet for each day in the homework packet as well. If you have questions please reach out to me.
I want to encourage all parents to sign up for our classroom dojo to stay up to date with classroom news.
