*Don’t forget to check your child’s planner/binder and your email nightly!

*We are looking for correct punctuation and capitalization in your child’s work.  The students will be docked 2 points for each error.  We are halfway through our year, and have been working on this since the beginning.

*Students should be working on XtraMath at least two nights a week.  We would like to see all students get to multiplication. A little practice every night helps!
