Welcome to the 2018/2019 school year.
Students will be coming home with several important papers. Please make sure to complete and return all paperwork as soon as possible.
I am looking forward to great year.
Students will be given two folders daily. A red Lacoste folder as well as a folder labeled "study folder." The red Lacoste folder will contain test packets and all Lacoste and first grade communication. The study folder will contain homework. The homework packet will be given out every Monday and is to be completed by Friday. It will be attached to the weekly newsletter. You will find sight words, spelling words, upcoming test information and important reminders. Math sprints and sight word practice sheets are included in the study folder and should be completed nightly with the clear sleeve and dry erase marker provided. Please remember to check both folders daily and turn in homework every Friday as it is 10% of your child's final grade.
