Dear Parents,


     I hope everybody enjoyed their snow break.! We will be moving quickly, however, please make sure your child completes homework assignments and read their books and record on their reading logs. Also, we’ve been checking sight words. Please make sure they study them. We are on Arctic animals, so I have decided to let the students do a project about their favorite Arctic animal. They will do a shoebox habitat. They may do this at home and bring it to school by Friday, January 26. Thanks,


Mrs. Marshall
