Welcome to Semester 2!

With the start of a new semester, you have a new schedule; make sure to keep track of this document until you know your schedule. Also, this is a good time to check your supplies. If you need any new school supplies, please get them and bring them to school. We could use some tissues and wipes in our classroom, so that would be most appreciated if you could bring some in.

A reminder that your Audubon payment ($160) is due by Friday, 2/21. Any questions or concerns about this, let Dallmann know.

One final note: make an effort this quarter to get all of your work in on time and make sure that all of your work is complete. You are developing work habits that will follow you in the future, so make sure you are developing positive work habits.
