Please check your child's homework and information sheet daily.   Students will receive this at the beginning of each week.  This homework sheet will keep you informed of school events, your child's daily homework, vocabulary words, and spelling words.
Your child is assigned homework EVERYDAY including weekends.
 
My class is also participating in the Pizza Hut BOOK IT! program.  Students are expected to read for 30 minutes daily (including weekends), mark it on the BOOK IT! calendar, then turn in the calendar for a coupon for a free personal pizza at Pizza Hut!  The form must be signed by the parent and the child.  Get busy and read!
 
Tutoring is held each Tuesday and Wednesday, unless otherwise noted on the weekly Homework sheet.  Students will work on Reading and Math.  Students will also use computer programs such as Reflex Math, Istation Reading, and Think Through Math. 
Tutoring time is 3:30-4:30.
