February 6th


Dear Families,


Valentine’s Day: We will have a some time set aside on Friday, February 13th for a short Valentine’s Day celebration.  We will keep it low-key, but we would appreciate it if any families are willing to donate “healthy-ish” type snacks (dried fruit, popcorn, cookies).  We will also be exchanging valentines.  If your child would like to participate, please be sure that they bring cards for everyone in the classroom.  Our class list is as follows:


Alden, Alice, Allisyn, Ally, Amalie, Brandon, Calvin, Charley, Elana, Emma, Henry C., Henry W., Isaac, Jayden, Jeremy, Joey, Kai, Kalel, Lorelei, Max, Maya, Merren, Nicholas, Niko, Ronson, Rose, Shay, Taima, Veronica


Please send me an email if you will be able to donate snacks for the 13th.


Report Cards:  Report cards are due to be sent home today, but due to lots of staff illnesses, we are still waiting on a few pieces that need to be in place for the full reports to go home.  Sorry for the suspense!


Math Facts Practice:  Remember to take 5 minutes each day to do a few facts that are difficult for your child to answer quickly.  Use flashcards, have your child say or write them, or log into Xtra math.


Human Growth and Development- Classes went great and the students all did a fantastic, mature, job of discussing this important subject.  If you haven’t had a chance to talk with your son or daughter about what they learned, take this opportunity.  You can remind them that it is part of their homework.
