School Supplies Check

Good Thursday morning parents!!

Just wanted to send a quick note requesting that you check with your students on their school supplies. We work with scissors, glue sticks, and colors almost everyday in science class but many of the students are having to share due to lost supplies or because they have run out of something. This is really slowing down instruction so I could really use your help. If you could please make sure that your student has all the supplies they need each day I would really appreciate it.

Thank you so much for your support, we could not do this without you!!
