Class Reward!

Hi, families!  Our class has earned over 1,000 Class Dojo points, therefore we have earned a class reward!  We have decided to watch the movie Charlotte's Web (rated G) this Friday afternoon, since we're finishing the book this week.  I have agreed to allow students to bring a non-healthy snack and a pop/juice to enjoy during the movie.  (No nuts, please.)  They've been doing such a good job and I'm looking forward to celebrating their efforts with this reward!  Please let me know if you have any questions! :)
