Accordion Folder

Dear Parents…please DO NOT REMOVE papers from the subject area pockets of your child’s accordion folder. We help the students purge those papers at school as needed. The front pocket is labeled "Take Home,” and that is the only pocket that contains papers that should be read and removed nightly. Thank You!
