Happy first week of Advent!

Extra reminders...

* Check your child's homework for accuracy. Please return all papers with a "Parent's Signature" stamp on it.

* Read all the directions for all the questions to your child.

* Enforce proper pencil grip and correct letter formation. It is okay to do hand over hand letter writing. This ensures correct letter formation.

* Have your child write only the first letter of his/her name in an uppercase letter, the rest of the letters are in lowercase letters. It is okay to have him/her erase and rewrite properly. This type of repetition helps your child to remember the accuracy and importance of writing his/her name correctly.

* Make sure the children are coming to school in jackets and optional hats, gloves, scarves... the weather is getting much cooler!

* If any parents have hand sanitizer to send in, we are running low, please send in! Thank you!

Thank you for all your help and support!

Have a great week!
