From the desk of Mrs. Sparrow
April 25, 2014
April is coming to an end. I can’t believe May is arriving next week! Time
is sure going by fast and I have so enjoyed it all! Things have been busy in
class and they will keep getting busier. Please encourage your child and
keep providing that great support!
Things to remember:
Fourth quarter celebration goal is to decrease in the amount of off
task behavior in the classroom that would interrupt the learning
environment. Please encourage your child to do their best and get tasks done
on time. In order to participate in the fourth quarter celebration the class
has to meet their goal.
