Next Week’s Share Schedule
We started our new year writing about resolutions, making snowflakes for our window, and learning about biographies and place value. January is a packed month where kids start to soar in academics, so make sure you are completing the math homework to stay up-to-date, reading often, and having your child read to you. The students are blowing me away with their progress!
