Here are just a few reminders for this week: * If you have not already sent in the $3.50 for the homework agenda and writing book could you please do so by the end of next week.  Thanks. * There will be an Open House tonight (Tuesday, Sept. 9th) at 6 pm.  Hope to see you there!   Students have begun bringing home a book(s) to read each night.  They should be reading each night and recording the name of the book on their log sheet.  We have not begun Guided Reading as we are doing Running Records on all students to get their current instructional level.  The books students have now are at a level that is one level below their instructional level from June.   Happy Reading!
