Clyde's Corner

I hope your kids were able to enjoy the snow this weekend. I am thankful the kids got enough snow to play and have fun, but it didn't interrupt life too much.

We have a busy week ahead of us. Friday is the 100th day of school and Valentine's day. It will be an exciting day celebrating friendship and the number 100.

We have napkins, juice, and cookies covered for Friday. If someone would like to send in some fruit to balance out the sugar that would be great! Just let me know!

Valentine's Day Celebration

On Friday, Feb. 14th we will have a small Valentine’s Day Party. Students are invited to bring Valentines to share with one another on Friday. We will have time to pass out the Valentines in class Friday afternoon. Please remember, if kids are going to bring cards to share with friends they need to bring one for each person so that no one is left out. We have 21 students in our classroom.

100th Day Project Due Monday!

Kids will be sharing their project with the class this week during their sharing time. Please help your child think through what they will share with the class.

- What did you collect?
- How did you choose it?
- How did you count it? (did they count by 1's, groups of 10, or other)
- How did you display it? Why?
- What did you learn?

Science Night

Science Night will be held in the Ridgecrest Elementary Gymnasium on Tuesday, February 25th at 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. Students will display and present their science projects and also see what amazing things their schoolmates have discovered. The Pacific Science Center will be there with a fun and interactive science demonstration as well.

So grab your lab coat and start planning your experiments now!

If your child is interested in submitting a science fair project, please complete the entry form below and return it to his/her teacher by February 5, 2014.

We Need Kleenex!

We are running low on boxes of Kleenex. If you can send in a box of kleenex for all of those runny noses I would really appreciate it. THANKS!
