q Homework is due on Fridays, and your childwill receive a new homework packet on Friday.
q Spelling Tests are every Friday. They will be tested on the words in thehomework packet.
q Librarybooks are due every Wednesday.Beginning in February our librarian Ms. Becky will have a new rule forreturning and checking out new library books. Kids must return their library books on Wednesday when they are due. If books are not returned Wednesday, yourchild will not be able to check out books the next day on Thursday. I’m asking for parents to help remind theirchild to return their library books every Wednesday. The best thing to do is to always keeplibrary books in your child’s backpack.
q ScienceFair Due Date Change:Before Winter Break I sent home the FUSD Science Fair packet. This is completely optional, but the due datefor projects is now May 1st. If you plan to participate make sure to readthe directions carefully and return your projects to me by May 1st.
