Mrs. Lenz’s 5th Grade 2006-2007

Improving Parent, Teacher, Student Communication

Change of Web Site

Posted by merrylenz on March 28, 2007

Dear parents,

  I’ve changed where I’m going to put announcements and homework assignments–from now on, please go to

www.think.com

(a lot easier to remember)

click on parents on the top of the page.

You can type in Columbiaville Elementary to find our school and then click on my name to get the latest information!!!  Your child has his/her own password–but this site is designed for children.  Please email me at [email protected] for any questions.  I will be sending home a letter about this new site after the break.
