2015-2016 School Year

Welcome to another great school year in the Upper SRC! We are looking forward to lots of fun and learning this year!

Miss Ashlee and myself get together each year and create a syllabus for our classrooms. Within the syllabus you will see the month, a thematic unit, topics of study, a special activity, and any parental responsibilities for that month. Hopefully this will help families plan for the school year!
