Have a Nice Break!

Dear Parents,

We would like to extend our best wishes to you and your families for a wonderful and relaxing break. Please remember that your children will be taking home a homework packet to practice over the break. ALL students are expected to return their homework to their teachers after the break. Students should also login on to practice reading and math. Their username and password is stapled to their planners or slipped in the pocket of their homework folder.

Happy Holidays!

Mrs. Faraj
