3. Please note that I am randomly checking that students are organized for class, particularly with 3 writing utensils and a well organized notebook. If a student is checked three times as unprepared, a lunch detention will be offered so the student may spend time with me to get organized.
Career day at Saunders will soon be upon us. Any parents who are interested in being presenters should review the attached documents to sign up.

1. The students have been introduced to an eagle population in which one egg recently hatched. Harriet is the mother and M15 is the father. Please know that students are encouraged to visit the site to stream live what is happening in the nest, but keep in mind that this is a wildlife setting and students must understand that wildlife actions may occur. Please follow this link if you wish to follow the birth and growth of the eaglets. This aligns with our unit on animal domains and kingdoms.
