Back to School 2016

Welcome Back! I hope everyone has enjoyed their summer.

My name is Samantha Hall. I am very excited for this school year. We will be building reading skills, writing skills, and learning new math strategies. We will also have fun with science and social studies.

Please keep coming back to the website as I update it with our monthly skills and activities as well as update the homework page weekly.

I look forward to a great year!

**In addition to the supply list, I will be asking for each student to send in a 1/2 or 1 inch binder. This will be used for our daily communication notebook.**
