This notice is left over from several years ago but it is still true. I want you to know that we do
 appreciate all the ways  the School community  helps our students, Thank You !

A lot of parents have been very good to our grade 4 classroom
providing basic supplies such as pencils, tissues, and cleaning
supplies. I'm often not good at getting timely thanks back to you.
Also thanks for all that the PTO and NEF have done this year.
Your kindness is much appreciated.

Homework Responsibilities:



Students should record their assignments in their homework books.
Daily homework is assigned Monday through Thursday.
No Homework is a very rare event and even then Daily Reading is expected
.
Homework isn't meant to be onerous. It is a review of concepts that have been introduced in the classroom or an opportunity to practice useful skills.
Generally there will be a Math, Science, and an ELA assignment along with
daily reading.
 




CORI check update
This is a quote from School Policy. "Any parent who has not gone
through the  CORI process MAY NOT volunteer in your classroom
for any reason." 
Forms may be filled out at the office. The process is fairly quick.
