Please check student planners daily for class work and homework updates. Differentiated instruction in curricular areas means that all students do not have the same work in each class each day!

Dress Code Reminder: Many students are having issues with the dress code; specifically jackets/hoodies with designs. Refer to the dress code that was sent home on the first day of school. Also, students are required to wear athletic shoes on days they have P.E. class.

***The Art Room is in need of material scraps, yarn, string, felt, etc.  Any donations will be appreciated!

 Please replenish school supplies as needed!
