Homework will be here daily as well as great photos of the children in action.Below is a letter from the 5th grade team regarding lockers:Greetings Parents:It is hard to believe that the start of school is just around the corner. We wanted to give you ample notification about your child's locker situation.All 4th and 5th graders will be assigned a locker. We ask that no locks be purchased to place on your child's locker. Also, children in the Middle School like to decorate the interior of their lockers and we reserve that privilege for the Middle School because they do have locks and they are responsible for their items if anything is lost or stolen. Again, please do not purchase any locker decor.We look forward to welcoming your children back to school in just a few weeks.Sincerely,The 5th Grade Team
