Welcome to Mrs. Stakem's Class!

February Newsletter


Please make sure that you are checking your child's folder each night, as well as initialing both the behavior calendar and homework.

Your child needs one small healthy snack each day to eat in the classroom mid-morning. Drinks are not necessary since we have a water fountain in the classroom.

Don't forget sneakers for Physical Education on Monday and Tuesday.

Please help your child remember to return library books on Wednesday.

The temperature in our classroom fluctuates. You may want to send a sweater or sweatshirt to school for your child to keep in his or her locker when our room is chilly.

We go outside for recess almost everyday, unless it is raining, snowing or frigid cold. Please make sure that your child is dressed appropriately for the weather, including a winter coat, hood or hat, gloves or mittens.

When the weather does not permit us to go outside, your child may want to bring a small toy to school for indoor recess. Stuffed animals, activity books, coloring books, etc. are acceptable for indoor recess.

Valentine's Day

Please send $3 to cover the cost of food and paper products for our Valentine's Day brunch on 2/12.

We will decorate bags in school to collect cards and treats from classmates.
