______________________________________________ If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org ____________________________________ Attention 6th grade parents: We have new math books...there are 2 books per student. They will bring home the first book to cover with a paper bag cover. They can then place a "stretchy" cover over it if they would like. All books must have a paper cover underneath. Paper bags are durable and make great covers. Please help your child cover their math book; if you need assistance, a video can be found on youtube by searching youtube for "paper bag book cover tutorial." __________________________________________ I am looking for a parent volunteer to cover the second semester math books. I would like to get this done in the next 2 weeks. Each 6th grader also needs to bring in 1 paper bag that we can use to cover the math books for the second semester. Please send these in ASAP. Also, if a parent would like to earn hours (and is safe environment trained) please contact Mrs. Lorenzi to arrange a time to come in and help cover the second semester math books. Books could also be picked up and taken home to cover. It is an easy way to earn service hours right from your own home. Thank you! _______________________________________ Homework help: Homework help is 2:30-3:30 and will begin the 2nd week of school. Sixth grade homework help will be in Mrs. Wennberg's room on Mondays and Wednesday and in Mrs. Lorenzi's room on Tuesdays and Thursdays. There is no homework help on Friday.
