Please remove all classroom wall hangings as it is the plan to either paint or wash classroom walls over the summer. Thank you.
5/21/15 > Old Textbooks
Please keep 5 old textbooks (StoryTown). Send the rest home with students before the end of the year. Also keep the StoryTown leveled reader books. Since we haven't yet received Social Studies, it would be wise to keep them until the new series arrives.

The old math series books are in storage by Mr. Dave's room. Give those to your students as well if you would like. Otherwise they are going to be disposed of over the summer.
