Friday note

1 - 11 - 16

Dear Parents,

We hope you all had a great week!

We will keep this note short and sweet. Please have your children continue to read ½ hour a day over the long weekend and log their progress in their journals. We also gave them a math sheet that will be due Tuesday. Remember that RAZ-Kids is an alternative to a reading from a book and can be logged in the same way.

We hope all of you have a safe and relaxing long weekend and we look forward to seeing everyone again next Tuesday!

Best,

Diane and Anna
