TITLE READING/MATH:  Math—Help your child find some appropriate number and problem solving games to play online, or play card or board games that involve counting or patterns.  Reading—Set aside a time and place for reading, like a comfy chair with a reading light for bedtime stories, or visit your public library regularly, find and read together the books that were your favorite when you were a kid.

JACKETS/COATS:  There are a large number of coats, and or jackets that have been left at school.  Right now they are on the railing going up the ramp by the cafeteria.  We have encouraged students to look and see if any of these jackets belong to them.
