Your Planner

We use our planner as a planner and not just for writing down HW. Students in my classes are expected to write down the daily assignment and dates for future assignments. I encourage all parents to look at the planner each day and initial the bottom of the planner. We all have busy lives and much happening everyday and the use of the planner to remind us of what we have done, and what needs to be done, is a great tool provided to us from our wonderful PTM!!

The most important pieces of all are to get to class everyday with a smile and good attitude.

There are many interesting things to learn about Ancient History for Sixth Grade and US History for the fifth grade
