Dear Parents,

Sunsplash field trip is next week. I will be sending home more info on rules for the trip later this week.

Check the calendar for end of year activities.        

The Nation Notebook is due the last week of school. I am looking that their book was complete and neat. If they need to print out new pictures, please help them. They may need to redo a page if it is damaged, messy or missing. Let me know and I will have another copy for them. This Notebook is 15% of their grade. For every day it is late I will deduct 5 points off their grade and Every missing page will be a 2 point deduction.
