In Writing/ Social Studies:

Our class has earned 50 compliments! I'm so proud! As a class reward, they voted to have stuffed animal day on Monday 3/10. Please help them remember their stuffed animal for Monday.

Field Trip Reminder- Students should bring in their permission slip and $10 cash for our field trip. Thank you for those who turned it in already! 

We have our special Toast to Memorial Fundraiser beginning again! Mrs. Nelson and I are doing a "Snack Attack" basket. Each child should bring in one snack to add to the basket. Please see the green flyer today for more information.

I hope you have a nice weekend. It's strange when 34 degrees feels warm! :)
