Happy Friday! I hope everyone enjoyed the long, Labor Day weekend last week.
We have had another great week at Kramer. The instruction and engagement in the classrooms is great! The teachers have the students focused on their learning targets, and are getting them use to the rules and routines in their classrooms.
Our first PTG meeting of the year will be held on Monday, September 10, 2012 at 7:00 pm in the Kramer cafeteria. Please come out and hear all of the great projects that the PTG supports, and feel free to volunteer. We have an active PTG, and always welcome new people to join us.
Picture day is Tuesday, September 11, 2012. Please remember to send your picture envelope with your child.
