First Days of School! 2016-2017

Dear Parents and Students,

What an excellent start we have had to the new school year!  Students in Language Arts class today were able to update their login information in the media center computer lab and explore teacher webpages.  While there is no official homework for Tuesday or Wednesday,
I am asking students to make sure they have all needed supplies and materials.  See the link above for the list; the list has also been posted on the school's homepage.
It truly was a wonderful day, and I enjoyed meeting many students on Team Explorer.  I look
forward to meeting the rest of our students tomorrow on Blue Day.

Mrs. Boleman
