” Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.”~ Oprah Winfrey
Welcome Back to School! I hope you all had a restful and fun holiday with friends and family. We are in a new year and have a new beginning! Let’s start the new year with a positive attitude and good daily habits. Please make sure daily math homework assignments are completed and turned in on time. When students are consistently not turning in their work, it adds up then it becomes difficult for them to make it up in time. Please continue checking and signing your child’s planner daily and ask them what they have learned in school.
Second quarter will end on Jan. 12 and third quarter starts on Tuesday, Jan. 16. Any missing assignments, test retakes, or make-up work will need to be turned in by Friday, January 12.
