I am so proud of my new friends. We are working on unpacking without reminders and coming in quietly at the beginning of our day. They did an amazing job in the "big" cafeteria. They remembered to use table manners and clean up their trash. Next week we will focus on lining up quietly and working independently without disturbing our neighbors.
All forms and supplies are due this Monday, August 17th. If I am missing something, you received a note in your child's Boomerang folder. Please check all of the pockets of the Boomerang folder every night and over the weekend.
