THANK YOU for encouraging your child to do his/her homework - reading at home each school night and practicing math facts appropriate for his/her age. Those who meet their second semester class reading goal will enjoy a picnic at Eisenhower Park with Fr. Peter and Principal Whitehair. Reading to and with your child will help develop important literacy skills. New goals are in place for the second semester. REMINDER - students who attend after school are reading each night and can count those minutes.

Last Friday afternoon we welcomed Mr. Stones, Abigail and Julianne's grandpa who presented, "Skins and Skulls." The Daughters of the American Revolution also presented awards to students who placed in their Junior American Citizenship Contests. Representing DAR were Cassy Wilson and Michelle Stephens.
