News from Mrs. Plainte
Spring is definitely in the air! The school year is winding down (some students have actually started acount-down!), and we are looking forward to the completion of a very successful fourth-gradeexperience. While most students have been working diligently toward the finish, I have noticed a few that seem to have decided that they are already on vacation. Please help me keep your studentfocused; we still have more than a month and many more assignments to go! We are BUSY this month—I’m not sure how we’re going to finish up the curriculum!!!
