Q4W06 – April 29 – May 3, 2019

Dear Parents,

6th grade ELA is planning a celebration for our students’ hard work on iReady this year.  They just completed their third diagnostic and their results are amazing!  (I will be sending home the paper this week.)  I am asking each student to donate $2 towards our pizza party.  ALL 6th grade students will participate and every little bit will help offset our cost.  

Thank you so much!
