  • Spelling Test on Friday
  • As we make preparations for the upcoming standardized assessment, our routine will change somewhat.
  • Instead of weekly stories, we will concentrate on comprehension of short passages and associated vocabulary.
  • Weekly ELA Charts will be distributed on the first day of the week and collected on the last day of the week.  All required assignments and activities will be listed on the chart.
  • Please encourage your child to try hard on each review assignment.  These will all be graded.
