Grade 4 & 5 Newsletter – Week of 1/6

Welcome back! I hope we are rested and ready to go! Charlie Robak will be joining us in fourth grade for the remainder of the year. I looked forward to having him in the class, and I know students are excited to see him again.
**Please, get CASE training done. Check with Mrs. Holland, but I believe everyone needs to do it. This is important for going on the class trip or any trip/function with the students.
