Week of August 19

~It seemed everyone did alright with the homework that went home this week. The homework will be similar to this the rest of the year (a paper book and colored book).

~Don’t forget to check you student’s backpack for papers everyday. I check these papers to make sure they are completed correctly before they enter the folder.

~Every Thursday, we will have a “Jeep Pride” day. If your child wears “Jeep” clothing (anything with “Jeeps” on it), they can earn pride points for prizes.

~Picture Day is Wednesday. An order form will go home at a later time for ordering pictures.

~Sight Word Flash Cards will go home every other week. Please practice these with your students. These cards are for you to keep.
