Mrs. Roberson’s Monthly News

April, 2018

Spring if finally here!  I hope warmer weather comes quickly!  We are trying to go outside for recess as much as possible.  Please make sure your students have weather appropriate jackets.

We are also getting closer to the end of the school year.  We have been very busy and we are running low on some of our school supplies.  We are in need of erasers and crayons.  Please send a pink eraser and a small box of crayons to school with your child.

We are also in need of paper egg cartons for a Spring craft.  If you have any, please send them to school.

Homework and Spelling words can be found on the homework page of the St. Chris website each week.  Be sure to check there if you need a copy of the spelling words.

Please also remember to sign and return your child’s spelling pre-test each week.
