Welcome back!  Any questions re: report cards, please ask me!
Kids, remember that I will expect you to be editing your writing more in all subjects in order to attain a high grade in third term. You should not be making the same mistakes we have reviewed many times.  Thanks for your efforts!  Thanks to parents if you ever have time to read over your child's work and give a little feedback (not a lot!).

1.  Spelling sentences due:  Tuesday AM.
2.  Autobiography to add to Children's story- first draft due:  Tuesday AM.
3.  Doodles art due: Thursday.  Often, kids will not bring art home as they may have to do it at lunch in order to have space and materials.
