Important Notes:

  • Students should charge their Chrome Books each day at home please.
  • Missing assignments are noted in Powerschool.  Please remind your student to turn in any missing work so it doesn’t turn into a 0.  
  • Powerschool shows your student’s grades.  It also shows missing assignments. I update it once a week (usually on the weekend).
  • Students should a a book of their own choosing at school at all times for silent reading.
  • Because we will be washing/ sanitizing hands a lot this year I suggest that each student have a small hand lotion in their art box to help with dry skin.
  • Coats, hats, gloves, boots, and snow pants are needed for recess. Please remind your child to bring them.
