Week of Feb 14: Lesson Plans

HIGHLIGHTS


DETENTION

The teachers take detention seriously and we don’t give it out unless the student warrants it.  If your child receives detention they have earned it.  Detention is usually a series of 3 days after school from 3:00-3:30.  Right now we are only giving out one-day detentions.  This may change in the future.

VALENTINE’S DAY BOX LUNCH  

Remember to bring your box in a paper or plastic bag so no one sees it Monday morning before school.  Read the letter again.  You bring your own lunch or get your hot lunch as usual.  Thank you.
