Please complete and return the RSVP form no later than Friday, December 20. Common COREses January 18 – English Language Arts and Math Shifts 1 & 2, January 25 – English Language Arts and Math Shifts 3 & 4, and February 1 – English Language Arts and Math Shifts 5 & 6.

Lights! Cameras! Action! Don’t miss the KUSI Channel 51/Cable 9 “Songs of the Holiday Season” program which airs December 24th and 25th. Our very own Wolf Canyon GLEE Club is one of the choirs featured in this program.

Common Core Tip of the Week: Read a play with your child then go to the theater to see it performed live. Pretend you are critics writing a review and discuss your thoughts. Example: A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens (sometimes referred to as “Scrooge”)
