Important Announcements:


Mrs. Filiberto and I have realized that the Math books are very heavy for some of the children to carry each day in their backpack.  We have decided, for now, to pull the math homework sheet each night until the book begins to shrink.  I hope this does not cause any confusion for you or your children.  Thank you once again for your cooperation.
