Hello parents of the Quartz class! My name is Ms. Taylor. If you have not introduced yourself please do so, I would love to meet everyone. Just a couple new procedures: Homework: Students will be doing spelling at home and reading for 30 min each night. Please sign your name at the bottom of each day in their planner. Also, students need to choose a science fair topic and write how they are going to test their investigative question.
