Mrs. Horak's Class Newsletter

Volume 8: January 5, 2016

Hello Families!

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a wonderful and relaxing winter break. We are almost at the end of the second nine weeks of the school year. As the freezing cold temperatures are finally here, I want to make sure that all of the students know how they are to go home if school is dismissed early due to bad weather. I have the forms that you filled out back in August but want to confirm with you. Please jot me a note or send me a quick email at lisa.horak@bcsemail to let me know how they will go home. Thank you in advance. Unexpected changes in routine can be very stressful for kids.

Some other important news:

  • P.E. is now on Fridays! Remember to make sure your child has tennis shoes on that day.
  • This week the student be rotating for a new science unit on the solar system. They will go to Mrs. Grainger's classroom for this fun unit!
  • In writing we are beginning a unit on opinion writing, practicing using reasons to persuade our readers about our ideas.

That is all for now. Please contact me with any questions or concerns.


Mrs. Horak
