Weekly News

Aug. 10,  2017

Dear Parents and Students,   
     I hope you had a wonderful summer!  We will have our annual Meet the Teacher on Thursday, Aug. 17 from 4:30-5:30.  Come by for a few minutes to see our classroom, introduce yourself, and drop off your supplies.  We will be organizing our materials and setting up our notebooks the first day of school.  The lists of supplies are on the Tippin website.  I have a few additional items; 3 red pens (not erasable), 4 highlighters, 10 sheet protectors, a small box or bag for small size materials used daily, and oil pastels (we will be using these for art projects - any size you would like is fine).  I look forward to a great year. 

Please purchase a Tippin Planner for $10.00.  We use them daily.

Mrs. Marlin
