Newport School District

Welcome to Mrs. Weir's Website
2/28 - 3/8
Spelling test will be on Tuesday March 7th.
Comprehension/Vocabulary test  and Grammar Test will be on Wednesday March 8th.

Regular Continuing Homework:
Each night students are to read at least 15 minutes. They can read more than 15 minutes a night if they would like but are only required to read the 15 minutes. After reading each night a parent or guardian must sign the students calendar and specify how many minutes he or she read. Otherwise, the minutes do not count if the calendar was not signed. This month each student needs to read 450 minutes and read the required number of nights a week in order to earn March incentive. For more information on the reading calendar, please locate the Reading Calendar page on my website.
