Quarter 3

Class Assignments/Homework for the week of January 21st

We are beginning the Civil War book, "Soldier's Heart".  Students are receiving their reading packet that goes with the book.  Since I only have 1 classroom set, no books can leave the classroom or go home.  If you are absent, please check out a loaner book with Ms. Kirk so that you don't get too far behind.
