Camp Reminders!

Camp is here! Camp is here!!!  We are leaving for Camp on Tuesday, June 6th. Reminders: Please check to make sure that you have all of your medicine ready to go in individual baggies, labeled with your child's name on it. If you don't have the instructions form filled out for the medicine, we will not be able to give it to your student. Your sleeping bag and all of your bedding must also be in bags labeled with your name on it. Please error on the side of too many labels. I guarantee things will still get lost, so lets try to prevent that! No electronics of any kind will be permitted and if found you will be punished with the highest consequence. So please, leave them at home!…

Homework Help! Adding and Subtracting Fractions

Good Afternoon Parents, Today in class we started a new chapter and I wanted to make sure that you had the tools to help out your student! We have started adding and subtracting fractions!
