Dec 10-13, Mrs. Farley

Thank you to all of the parents that came to the parent teacher conferences. Please schedule a meeting as soon as possible (if you haven’t already done so) so we can discuss important topics. As I mentioned Friday during conferences, I will now begin sending home the same vocabulary words that your child is practicing in class. If they can spend just 5 minutes a night reviewing these vocabulary words I know this will help with retention and ultimately success on their test at the end of...
