Math Manipulative Pick-up – We made a packet of manipulatives that will be helpful for your child to use during math time.  We will pass out the packets from 2:00-3:00 this Monday, Sept. 14.  (We would love to see our students again.)  If this time does not work for you, we will leave the packets on the front porch in a tub labeled with your child’s teacher’s name.  You can come by and pick them up when it is convenient for you.

St. Studies Weekly – Your child will receive St. Weekly in their math packet.  We will use these in class during our SS time.

We hope you all have a great weekend!
