      Wednesday:  Dress like a duo (peanut butter- jelly, Tom & Jerry, or just twins!)
      Thursday:  Crazy Day (hair, socks, clothes, etc.)
      Friday:  Wear patriotic clothing or NS spirit

Miss Brobst's class has a grammar worksheet for homework.  It is reinforcing imperative and exclamatory sentences to prepare for Wednesday's test.

Mrs. Herring's class has a scavenger hunt for Lewis, Clark & Me.  Answers can be found in the story.  The backside has vocabulary to be used as a review for Thursday's test.

AR goals were stapled in your child's assignment book.  October goals are 5 points or higher.  Goals need to be met by October 30th.

October 27 is the Halloween party.  Please send $5.00 in for party supplies.

Have a great week!
