Week of 04/13/15 - 04/17/15

posted Apr 12, 2015, 7:21 PM by Angela Furnari

As we are in the final grading period of school, and 5th grade “senioritis” can set in for some of our students, I would like to remind parents and students that I am available most days after school in case students need help with work, or need organizational support.  Students need to make sure to check with me in advance of staying, and arrange for pick up after school at the appropriate time.  We have two major deadlines this week, Literature Circle Questions on Tuesday and Similes in Songs Project on Friday, so please talk to your student to make sure he/she knows what to do and is on track for completing these assignments.
