Hello, boys and girls!  


It's Thursday already!  It looks like we are having outdoor recess today.  Be sure to take time to go outside and get some fresh air in a responsible way.  


Here are your reading, writing, and math assignments for Thursday, March 26, 2020.  


Did you listen to Mr. Porowski's morning announcements?  Be sure to hear what he has to say live each day at 8:00AM!  If you're sleeping in, hit the replay button when you wake up!  Be sure to listen to his 8:00PM bedtime story if you wish.  


Please email me each day to let me know which activities you completed-it's one way to keep us connected.  If your parents are able to, send me a pic of your completed work, or give it to me when we return to Campbell.  If you send me work, I will provide you with feedback.    


If you are looking for some extra assignments, the feedback I'm hearing about IXL is positive.  You can explore all of the subjects in the program, not just math or reading.  


I loved seeing so many of you on Zoom this week.  I'm glad everyone is healthy and doing well as we adjust to this temporary new normal.  We will meet up again soon!


Missing you all so much,

Mrs. Smith
