Dear Families,

Thank you so much for working with your children at home on these unexpected days off!  


Best Regards,

Ms. Vargas

Hello 6th Grade Families,
    I sat with each 6th grader and reviewed their first draft of their Wonder Essay. I explained that they should not be rewriting their essay. Each student should simply go back to Google Classroom and click on their FIRST DRAFT ESSAY. Once their document opens, students can just make the corrections from their papers. After everything is done, students can simply click resubmit. 
    I also explained to students that their IRN assignments will be placed on hold until their long term substitute begins. They have been doing a great job with their work, and I want them to continue reading. 

Best,
Mrs. Baier
