Dear Parents,

We have a short week this school week, with a half-day on Thursday and no school on Friday! Thank you for continuing to check your child’s homework each night. Our routines are building and things are running smoothly.  We will continue with MAPS testing this week.  This is all done in the computer lab and each child works at his/her own pace. The students are taking the math, language arts, and reading subtests. Please start thinking about a special saint your child would like to learn more about and portray on All Saints Day, November 1st.

Pray for me and I will pray for you,

Mrs. Hinton
