The first semester is coming to a close (Janauary 17) and a new one beginning (on January 21) soon. Please collaborate with your child so all work is turned in and that it demonstrates all the great learning that has occurred for the first part of the year. Also, please encourage your child to check her/his schedule some time during the week (1.13-1.17) so s/he knows where s/he is going on the first day.
