    Weekly Newsletter from Mrs. Garnes

    November 4th – 10th


    • Please sign the conduct folder that is going home today and return only the folder.  You may keep the papers. 
    • AR goals have been reset.  Please make sure students are reading each night to help them meet their goal. 
    • A note went home last week on our upcoming field trip to the Civic Center to see “Winter Fables”.  Please send in $3.25 by Tuesday, November 5th
    • We will be starting intervention/enrichment groups on Wednesday.  Students will be rotating between one of the fourth grade teachers for groups.  This will take away work time in the afternoon.  Please still make sure students are completing any unfinished classwork at home.
