Spelling Program Update!
WOW! What an amazing group of spellers we have! The kids have been doing very well on their Friday tests and came home last night with a NEW ORANGE NOVEMBER spelling menu glued into their yellow spelling scribblers. Please continue to choose an activity each night from the menu and return books on Friday to be checked. I told the kids they could have a free night off for Halloween and to go ahead and choose T-Th. There were a few yellow books that had gone missing so I handed out some new ones and asked the kids to take good care of them.
