Please bring materials to work on your acrostic in the classroom tomorrow-no computers


Many of the grade 6s are having trouble carrying all of their books from both lockers and then to the classroom.  I suggested that they bring a tote bag that they could keep in their lockers and use to bring their stuff to class. 

It is not a necessity, but I know that there are already a few students who do that and they find that it helps.

I'd like to thank anyone who has volunteered for our upcoming bingos, however we still need a few more people. I am in need of a Bonanza Controller and Chairperson, both of these positions need to be filled by someone who has done them before. PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THIS IS THANKSGIVING WEEKEND.

I am still looking for volunteers for Nov. 29th bingo.

I would also like to thank everyone for their patience while I have been away, it's been a tough month to say the least.
