We will be taking a break from word work this week; partly because it's a short week and partly because we have a few Valentine's Day themed projects to complete. We will be back at it next week even though it's a four day week as well.
We will not be having a party, but will celebrate with Valentine themed topics and art this week. If your child is giving out cards at school, please make sure they are giving a card to every student. If they only want to give one to a special friend or two, please do this on play dates or before or after school to avoid hurt feelings. There is no obligation to give out cards. Students may hand out their cards on Friday after recess.
I have had several requests for class lists to help with Valentines cards: (21 kids) Aeidia,Alex, April, Aubrey, Ava, Bruce, Cassian, Chloe, Emma, Foxx, Jensen, Kaedon, Lizzy, Lucas, Maddison, Sienna, Tanis, Taymin, Trevor, Tyson, and William
Tuesday - William
As of Wednesday, there will no longer be show and tell- at least for this rotation. We will probably bring in another form of speaking activity with the next rotation. Special helpers will still have other special responsibilities and privileges.
Family Dance & Basket Donations
A big thank you goes out to the families who have donated breakfast items for the fundraising basket. We are still in need of more items. If you haven't sent a donation yet, please make sure you send them Tuesday or Wednesday so the basket will be ready for the Family Dance on Friday. The PAC has gone to a lot of work and it sounds like this will be a fun, community building event. Hope you'll be able to support with a donation and will be able to enjoy the dance on Friday.
