Week of August 28th, 2017
There may again be some indoor recess days this week, due to the excessive heat. We continue to encourage students to take their water bottle when we go outside.
Students should be reciting the poem “Eletelephony” from memory in class on Tuesday.
My tutoring hours are Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 3:45-4:15. Tutoring is by invitation only and is skill based. For example, if your scholar struggled with concepts on the math test, I will be inviting you to bring them to tutoring during the next two weeks. If you have concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.
