    Can you help?

    Can you contribute any of the following for your child's Challenge class?  Students and teachers will be most appreciative! 


    • Clorox Wipes
    • Paper Towels
    • Kleenex
    • Baby Wipes

    Please check your child's Challenge folder each week and help them to remember to return it the following week. Items to look for are Weekly Challenge assignments and notes from the teacher. The newsletter is also sent home in the folder. Please remove items that are in the side that says Keep At Home. Sometimes your child may share their Challenge papers with you, but they are left in the folder. It helps us to know that you are receiving communication if the papers are removed.

    If papers are sent in the side that says: Return to School, then please place them back in the folder and return in time for your child's Challenge day.

    Thank YOU!
