Isaac is the Student of the Week!

We are starting fractions in Math class.  We are going to make paper pizzas on Monday, but on Wednesday, I would like for the students to make real pizzas.  Each student will need to bring $5.00 in by Monday, October 19 so that I can pick up all of the supplies needed for lunch on Wednesday.  We will be eating our pizzas for our lunch Wednesday so no need to pack a lunch unless your child doesn't like pizza.

On Friday, October 23, we are going to be reading books to other students.  I would like for everyone to be practicing on a short story book at home that they would like to bring in that day and read to other students.  Students may dress as one of the characters in the book they choose. I would like to see the book that they choose first before reading it aloud to other students.  These books will be due on Monday, October 19.
