Notes from Mrs. McCoy:
Please read the October Newsletter!
Attached you will also find the expectations that you all wrote on Back to School Night. Please email me at:
smccoy@att.net
if you have an email address I could start sending the Monthly Parent Letters and Friday News to. We are trying diligently to save paper and copies as our copy budget has been cut 40%. Emailing the letters would help so much!

Our pattern is ea .
Our bonus word was allegiance.
