Last week's work plans will be collected as you enter the room Monday morning.  I will give you your brand new work plan at that time, as well.  Progress reports will go home Tuesday and are to be signed and returned to school Wednesday.


You will have a vocabulary quiz on Monday morning based upon your works in social studies over the past week.  Click HERE to view your list.

We will be taking the first administration of the Language Arts and Math MAP assessment this week.  Please enjoy a healthy breakfast each morning, and come to school ready to show what you know!

The first PTA meeting of the year is this Thursday at 6:30 in the media center.  I hope to see you there!

Families of 6th graders, please plan to attend one of the One-to-One device meetings this Thursday at 7:00 am or 6:00 pm.  Your child will not be issued a device unless you attend one of these meetings. 

Finally, 4th graders please review and return the forms for New Ebenezer Camp that were sent home on Friday.  Please email Ms. Kami if you have any questions about this trip.

Have a great weekend,
Mr. Trent
