To-Morrow's Minds

February 5, 2016

Spring Picture Day is Tuesday!

EARLY DISMISSAL AT 12:10 NEXT FRIDAY!

We have a half day on Friday the 12th. A lunch from home is encouraged. The cafeteria will still be offering a basic sack lunch with a sandwich, milk, and side.

Valentine's Day Party is Thursday at 2 pm!

You are welcome to come and attend, just use the sign up link below.

You may send in Valentines for the class, we have 10 girls and 13 boys.

Names on Valentines are not required (it's much easier for the kids to pass them out that way) so just write To: My Friend, From: Your Name.

Valentine's Day Party Guest Sign Up

Please sign up if you plan on attending the Valentine's Day Party on February 11th in our classroom from 2:00 PM -2:45 PM. There is a limit of 4 volunteers per classroom and 2 guests per child. Thank you!

Reading is the Most Important Homework

The most important homework you do each night is to READ!


The other homework assigned is meant as an extension of learning, daily good habits, and building responsibility.


Students will keep 3-4 books inside their Guided Reading Bag at all times and I will rotate the oldest one out as we get a new book each week. The Book Log inside the Guided Reading Journal is for Teacher Use Only, please.
