  •  Science Recycling posters are due Monday!! They are mandatory. I have also seen ELA and MAth packets. Please check assignment books and make sure students are finishing their homework. These packets are helping students review and practice skills before our state testing. Thanks parents for working with your students on organization skills!
  • We are having a collection for the flood victims of Nebraska. A flier is coming home to show the needed items for the collection! Thank you for contributing!
  • Next week Leadership binders will come home for parents to review with their students. Please give your student time and attention to show his/her achievements throughout the year. They are very proud of their goals and progress toward meeting them. When you are finished you will have the ooportunity to respond and give positive feedback to your student. The binders will then be sent back to school with the student. You will receive them home permanently at a later time. We appreciate your focus on leadership skills and the 7 habits!!
