Tuesday, April 12, 2016

The work on the gas leak outside the school cannot be completed before school tomorrow, so there will be NO SCHOOL at Roxbury on Wednesday, April 13.

We will update families when the work is completed and school can resume.

April? Already?
Sunday, April 10, 2016

Where did the time go? So hard to believe it is already April. We have much to do in this final stretch of the year. Please continue reading and writing with your child. Have them retell stories you read with them.
In writing, please be sure your child is using proper conventions.
You can help your child in math by having them structure 5 with their fingers and counting to 100 from a given number.
Please check the calendar for upcoming events!
