Can you believe it?  The first trimester is half over already! I handed progress reports to all the students.  Please ask your child to see his/hers.  Please also sign the report, as your child has been instructed to return it to me so I can see that you received it.
 
 Please remember, besides the regular weekly homework, there is a book report due at the end of each month.  October 31st will be our next book report due date.
