January 29 – February 2



Special Notes and Dates

  If you ever need to contact me, you can email me at hbreslin@nedubois.k12.in.us or call 812-678-2777.  If I am unable to talk at the time, you can leave a message on my voicemail or with Judy, and I will call you back as soon as possible. 


  • On Monday, January 29, we will be taking our monthly trip to the Dubois Public Library. Library books are also due on that date. I apologize that I didn’t send a reminder sooner.
  • Final copies of the students’ research papers are due on Friday, February 2. Some kids will be bringing their rough drafts home this weekend to finish them up. The rough drafts are due on Monday, January 29th.
  • Just a reminder that Reading Logs are due every Friday. If we are not in school on a Friday due to snow or another emergency, the Reading Logs are due the next school day. Also, please put the total number of minutes read at the bottom of the reading log.
  • From this point forward, all students should keep their blue Winter Emergency folders in their backpacks. Inside, you will find three days worth of work in case school is again cancelled due to inclement weather. Hopefully, we won’t need to use it, but all students should be prepared every day, just in case.
