Character Counts

Each month we will be discussing a very important character trait.  We will learn about respect, caring, citizenship, fairness, trustworthiness and responsibility.



Remember the Golden Rule: Treat others the way you want to be treated!





Spelling Words


Each week we will have a new set of words for the students to learn how to spell and use in sentences.  Find fun ways to practice at home!
