Weekly Newsletter for 2/21/14

Dear Room 4 Families,

Our upcoming field trip to CuriOdyseey on Thursday, March 2oth is fast approaching! Please make sure that you have completed and signed the permission slip and have returned it to school. Your child may not attend the field trip without a signed permission slip by a parent or guardian. If your child requires an arrangement to bring a car seat to school on the day of the field trip, please contact me. Our field trip chaperon list has been sent to district, no further chaperons/drivers can be added to the field trip at this time.

Our weekly homework packet includes an online portion that needs to be completed. If you are having trouble configuring your computer, please let me know and I will be happy to help. Your child can also stay after school to complete their homework in the classroom. This should not take more than 15 minutes once they learn how to use the computer.
