Students will be learning about various winter holidays from around the world.

Thank you for your help and support at home! As a reminder, your child should be coming home with little no no true "(only at) home work" most days. If time is used well throughout the day and during daily study hall, your child might only have some A.R. reading to do at home. If your child is working more than an hour on assignments at night, please let me know.

Power School Parent Portal - Keep track of your child's grades and assignments by logging in to Power School. Your User Name and password information will be sent home at the beginning of the school year. Only the main office can give you login and password information should you forget or lose it.

I will do my best to have grades and assignments updated each week. It is the student's responsibility to keep track of homework and activities in their assignment notebooks on a daily basis. PARENTS: Look at your child's assignment notebook every day to see what we did in class and keep track of upcoming activities, quizzes, tests, etc.

**Parents and students, you can always come in to Mrs. Irving's room to get something you forgot or finish up homework when you arrive at school - 7:40 A.M. or later. (There are *certain* weekdays after school that I may be available as well, so please e-mail or send a text message through Remind if there is a day after school that you might need some additional help.) Due to meetings, I must schedule after school work time ahead of time; in the morning, you can just come on in and let the office know you're there for Mrs. Irving.
