The secret message/code this week is huff or huffing.
Come and have your child tell me the secret message/code to have your child’s name put into a drawing.
A Special note; We have had numerous absences over this semester When students are absent, we are unable to cover new material. Please make every effort for your child to be at school. We are winding down this quarter and there is still more to cover. In the next two weeks, we will have more students absent during this critical time. Thank you for understanding.
