Reminders

It would be helpful for your students to have an extra pair of socks, pants, and underwear in their backpack (labeled). During these winter months, snow pants do not always hold up, and a change of clothes is helpful. Thanks!

*Students should also have a hat and gloves with them. Unless it is bitterly cold or raining, they will head outside for recess. :)

Remember to turn in your February Paws for Reading!

If your child wears boots to school, please remember to send them with their shoes for P.E. Thanks!

***Remember to save the date for our Kindergarten Literacy Night- February 18th! You WON'T want to miss it! More info. to come...

***Baggie books start this week! These are books at your child's level they can read to you. The first book will come home this week with a letter of explanation. SO exciting! :)

***Please remember NO candy on your child's valentine cards. This is district policy. Thank you!

*I have attached the class list to this newsletter for valentines!
