HOMEWORK: Homework over our Christmas vacation is “voluntary”.   I would like to encourage everyone to try to do some reading. I am sending home a reading log for Christmas break and our first week back at school. Hopefully everyone will have time for board games, exploring, creating, adventuring and lots of conversation!
