22: 2nd grade Music Concert
14: Donuts With Dad
27:Last Day of School
Homework assignments can be found in the planner each week.
The assignment is due the next day.
As per district policy, students should spend NO MORE than 20 minutes on homework a night.
Math: There are "Must do" problems and "Can do" problems.
"Must do" problems are indicated with a star.
If the student finishes the must do problems in less than 20 minutes,
they are to complete as many more of the "can do" problems as they can in the time that is left.
If they do not finish the homework worksheet in the 20 minutes, it is okay!
I do not require them to finish it, and actually, prefer that they stop homework and find something else to do (ie, play with siblings, spend time with family, etc)
If there is a blank in the homework space for that day, they are to read for 20 minutes.

Dear Parents and Guardians,
I am excited to share information about our new online portal for elementary students called Clever. Through this online portal students can access their Math program (Zearn) and their Music program (Quaver). Students will practice logging in at school.
To access Clever at home:
SullSte30 (student - Stephanie Sullivan, graduation year 30)
LuCin27 (student - Cindy Lu, graduation year 27)
I will be putting small stickers right inside their planners to remind them of their login information.
