Community Service projects are due NEXT WEEK! Students will be presenting (a short 3-5 minute oral presentation of their project) the week of April 23rd. Please practice this presentation with your child so that they are prepared to present in class. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to email me.We will have sign-ups for presentations on the Classroom Clipboard this week.
