    Student's Personal Headphones

    Students were asked to bring in their own personal earbuds or headphones for use during the school day. This was on the third grade supply list. There are several programs that we use as well as a couple of assessments which require the children to utilize headphones.  Last week we tried to do an assessment and multiple children did not have their headphones.  Unfortunately, I do not have extra headphones for all who needed them. The few that I do possess are not in the best working condition.  Please help us by assiting your student with bringing their headphones to school for use in school. Thank you so much for your help with this.
