    We will be learning about Social Emotional Learning, Holidays around the world, Measurement, and Poetry.
     
    There is no school Friday, December 24th.
     
     
    Some notes so far:
     
    PLEASE make sure students are charging computers nightly. We do not have enough places for all the students to charge during the day. Computers should be at 100% charge when coming to school.
     
    Students masks need to be able to stay up easily. Many masks are falling off of noses.
     
    Students cannot share food or drink. Not only is it unsafe in the current situation, but they may accidentally cause a food reaction.
     
    Students should bring a water bottle with them that closes well and does not leak. Do not carry this in same compartment with the computer.
     
    Backpacks are heavy with the computers, chargers, Notebooks and folders. Please let home items stay home. Students need to bring their chromebooks daily, fully charged. they should also bring their charger, just in case.  Please don't bring extra toys or items to school. Extra Jackets, coat, and sweaters should fit inside the bookbag when not in use.
     
    Students should stay home if not well. Please reach out to the office if you have any questions.
