Conferences:  Our Parent/teacher conference is on Thursday from 5:00-7:00.

Folders:  Please check your child's folder daily.  There are a lot of forms that go home at the beginning of the year that need to be returned as soon as possible.  If there is a form that you have not sent back, we will send home another one in your child's folder.  

Transportation Change:  If you need to change the way your child gets home, please send a note in your child's folder.  If there is a last minute change, please call the school and tell Tricia.  She will let us know. 

Library Books:  Please make sure that your child’s library book comes back by Thursday so that he or she can check out another book.  I have a library basket available for the students to put their books in. 

Show and Tell:  No show and tell this week because the students do not come on Friday.

Engrade:  Grades 1-5 use Engrade to record grades and prepare the reports.  Kindergarten does not use Engrade.  I cannot open messages from Engrade.  If you need to send me a message, you can send a note in the folder, use Class Dojo, or send me an email at rdent@k12.wv.us .

Field Trip:  We need the permission slips as soon as possible if your child is going on the field trip to Gritt’s Farm on Monday.
