Note from Mr. Mushegan for October

It is hard to believe, but we are fast approaching the end of the 1st quarter, which is October 20. Students are really doing well in class, and I am proud of their progress as we finish the quarter. Such a great group of kiddos!

Please encourage your child to finish their Accelerated Reading points by October 20. 16 points are needed for an "A" or 20 for the A.R. Award. Please be aware that you can go to our Accelerated Reader link on our school homepage and log-in using your child's username and password to view the most up-to-date information.

Thanks for your support and encouragement!

If you should have any questions, please contact me at .
