Reynolds' Raptor's News #26

Hello Everyone!
     I hope you enjoyed the wonderful spring weather, over the weekend!  I sure did!!
Your child should have brought home a compare contrast piece for you to critique last week.  They were given the assignment to put it altogether over the weekend.  They should have an opening statement, the body, and a closing statement.  It may be typed, or handwritten.  Thank you for your help with this.
     Happy Birthday Megan! February 26  Happy 1/2 Birthday Cooper!  February 27!
     Also, keep in mind the Ancestor Book Report due, February, 28.  It is a combination of an ancestor's report for the Son's of The Utah Pioneers, and a book report.  It should have a cover page, including the title, student's name, school, and my name.  It should be the students own work, either typed or best hand writing.  It needs to have at least 300 words.
     The Science Fair registration was due February 14.  If your child did not return it on time, they may NOT participate in the Science Fair!  However, the project doubled as an Informational Book Report that will be presented in class!  In other words, they must still do the project! Due, March 22 it just won't be judged, or put on display for parents and the school to see.  They will get classroom credit only!
     SEP Week March 3-7!  Please watch for your appointment time to come home Monday,  February 24th!   I hope to see each of you there!  Your child will be taking charge of their own conference!
