Don't forget... Monday, Jan. 19 is Martin Luther King Day - no school.  Also, Thursday, Jan. 22, Mr. Morin will be at a District seminar, so there will be no after-school tutoring that day.  Please plan accordingly.
 
January is a special month!  We have a special book report due on the 30th.  Please ask your child about our "Story Cube" book report.  They have all the instructions needed to complete a great report.
