Coin Exchange

Tomorrow is our final day to collect pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters, and dollar bills!

Public Library

We had a wonderful trip to the Exeter Public Library today! The children that took out books should have a slip in their book explaining when the book is due back.  If the children did not have a library card, I did have them write down a book they would like to get if they are able to go back with you on another day. Happy Reading!

Sight Word Practice

Please remember that a terrific way to have your child practice their sight words (on the back of their green folder) is to write 10-15 words that are not highlighted on flashcards and play Memory with them. Happy Weekend!
