We were just getting started today, reviewing procedures and getting an overview of the content to be covered this year. The only homework is to return your registration and dental forms that were sent home today. We will continue to review procedures tomorrow and there will written homework in Language Arts and Math. I was very pleased with how everyone conducted themselves today.  We're going to have a great year!
