THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH for your contributions to our camping-themed "class basket" for the "Love for Excel" silent auction! Total value: $462!

Weekly Update


WOW! Families, you've really blown me away by the generosity you've shown in your contributions to our class basket for the Love for Excel silent auction. Thank you very much! We ended up with nearly all of the items purchased on the wish list and a basket with a total value of $462!!! That is amazing!

In Social Studies, students have been studying the Civil War and creating an "ABCs of the Civil War eBook." Ask your child to show you theirs. They should have at least 17-18 pages completed. If not, then they may need to spend some time outside of school working on it.

Paperwork for the optional extended field study to Mountain Lab School in April was sent home in Friday Folders on December 20. This paperwork will be due February 4th. The $50 deposit is due on January 31st. Remember to go online to register with Idrahaje too.

Best Regards,

Ms. Kaschub
