THINGS TO REMEMBER:

Pizzas can be picked up after school on Monday.  Please deliver them right away or put them in your freezer.

Wednesday is 1:30 dismissal because of a faculty meeting.

Our class has the Mass on Wednesday.

Thanks to those who sent in snacks for testing week.

We are off Thursday and Friday because the teachers are attending a Reading Conference in Springfield.

I am trying to encourage the students to be neater with their written work and also to be more conscientious about doing homework assignments.

 

Please sign planners every night.  Your signature means that you have checked to see that their work is completed and is in their planner.

 

Please remind students to study a little each evening and not wait until the day before the test.

 Also remind them of the importance of having homework done on time and done carefully.
