Welcome to the second week of school.

This week we will be building their INB in class and learning about the fundamentals of geography.
There is no homework this week unless a student does not finish their work in class . Students decorated their INB's today and we will be setting them up tomorrow.
I'm looking forward to this adventure with your child.
