Good afternoon!  We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Today MOST Edisons will be bringing home a Household Information Survey Form that TPS needs filled out and returned ASAP.  Please fill out the form according to the directions (use a pencil and do not fold) and return in the envelope provided.  Please have your child bring these back to their Homebase teacher tomorrow or as soon as possible.  

Also, we want to remind you that the Edisons will be going on a Field Study to Will Rogers Museum in Claremore this Thursday.  We will leave a little before 9:00 and will return around 12:30.  The Edison teachers will provide lunch for the Edison students when we return.  SO, YOU DO NOT NEED TO SEND A SACK LUNCH THURSDAY!  If you are joining us, please be aware that you will need to pay the $7 entrance fee to the museum.  Edison students need to wear their Edison t-shirt and uniform bottoms.

Several weeks ago, Mrs. Sander send a packet of extra practice math assignments home with some students.  These need to be returned ASAP…they were due November 18th.
