Important Dates to Remember

Feb. 4th- Topic 10 math test and spelling lesson #18 test.

Feb. 5th- No school

Items STILL needed:

Please check in with your child over break and see if they are in need of the following supplies for school:

-post-it notes

-headphone/ear buds

-sock eraser


-Expo marker


Many kiddos have ran out of these times and I have had many students borrowing supplies the last few weeks, which I am happy to do. I also know how they like to be "owners" of these times and they don't always like having to borrow. Thanks in advance.

Valentine's Box/Bag

Please be as creative or generic as you would like. Decorate a box or bag, with your name written large on the front or top. Then make a large slot for your valentines to be mailed. This is to be brought into the classroom on Mon., Feb. 6th or Tues., Feb. 7th.

Medical Leave

I am going on medical leave, for a left hip arthroscopy and will be out for 5 days. I will be having the surgery on March 7th and plan to return after Spring Break. My substitute is Mrs. Hart. She will be there from March 7-11. Mrs. Hart has been a sub at Black Bob, she is very familiar with our school. She has done 2 of my long term sub jobs, when I was on maternity leave, so I have confidence she will do a great job in my classroom.

I will continue to check my email when I’m gone. Please feel free to contact Myself or Mrs. Putthoff if you have any questions while I am gone.
