Notes from the Teacher


Hello 4B Families,

I hope you all are having a wonderful start to this week enjoying this beautiful fall weather outside.

Things to be checking for this week would be your child’s weekly reading log and signing their agenda each night. These are two forms of communication that help all of us stay on the same page! Please note, this Friday is a half day! There is no school this coming Monday 11/12 for Veterans Day.  I do look forward to meeting with you all either that Tuesday or Wednesday about your child’s progress this year! I hope you all have a safe and wonderful week! 



Ms. Butzer
