Dear Fabulous Families:
Science Fair Projects:  Time to get experimenting!  If your child hasn’t started his/her experiments, use this weekend to get going on them.  Your child’s Friday Folder has homework #4, which focuses on the final display board for the projects.  Feel free to contact me with any questions.
We NEED Volunteers! We are in need of family/community volunteers to help teach our new round of Creative Expressions.  We currently have slack-lining, nature explorations, dance and comic-booking confirmed.  These sessions run every Friday from 12:00-1:10 and consist of groups of around 10 students.  If you have a talent, skill or passion you would be willing to share, please contact me ASAP.  WE CANNOT BEGIN UNTIL WE GET MORE VOLUNTEERS!  The kids have been missing their chance to connect with each other and the adults to learn and practice new skills and ideas.  
Progress Reports:  Upper elementary progress reports are in your child’s Friday Folder this week.  We will not have regularly scheduled spring conferences because of missed student contact days during the snowy weather, so please be sure to contact me if you have any questions or concerns that you would like to get together and discuss.  
Upcoming Events: 
  • 2/21/14       Pasta Dinner 5-7pm
  • 2/27/14       Pre-Lottery Information Session 
  • 2/27/14       Ridgeline Middle School Information Session (5th and 6th graders)

Thank you families for the love and support you provide for your amazing students!  We can see the work you do reflected in the students in the classroom!
