New students to LCS will work with Mrs. Grove, the third grade English teacher, and me on basic phonogram knowledge that they missed in kindergarten and first grade.
Next week in science students will be continuing their study of insects. I will be bringing in Silkworm eggs, and we will set up a habitat for them in each of their classrooms. We look forward to an exciting week ahead!
