There are plenty of choices for homework each night even if we don’t have a Math paper to complete.  Studying spelling words, Math facts, or sight words is always a good option, along with reading the book in your child’s reading folder.  It can be overwhelming for some kids to complete all of these tasks in one evening.  Pick and choose something each night.  We don’t want homework to be a battle or take up all of your family time in the evening!  Thanks for your support!

Looking Ahead:

December 22 – 1:30 early dismissal, No PM Kdg.

December 23 -January 2 – Holiday Break, no school
