**Don't forget your homework!  The only homework we ask is 20 minutes of reading.  This time may include: timed reading practice, decodable readers (Tues & Thurs), Spelling word and High Frequency Word Practice.  Library books or books from your personal library may be read also during this time.  Please initial calendars and decodable readers when this is complete.  


**Please send all money in a LABELED envelope with your child's name and purpose.  Any money send to school that is not labeled will be returned in BEE Books. 


**Please help your child learn their lunch number.  Even if your child does not go through the lunch line often, these numbers are used for many other things.  These numbers should be the same as the one from last year.
