Dear Parents and Families, We had a great first week and I look forward to another great one this week. We have filled our loop jar about 1/3 of the way full in just one week due to great listening and following directions. This week we will visit all the different areas of the campus and review expectations again with a Simis Passport. You will see this passport on Friday when we send it home. Students who return it signed get a prize! This week is also MAP Math on Monday and MAP Reading on Tuesday. Please make sure students have a healthy breakfast both days to start their day off right. I will send results home by the end of the week. If you have questions please email me. Have a wonderful week!
