Things to Note

Biography Project

We have been working hard on our biography project. Most of the research is complete and children are working on their reports and speech this week. They should be finding/ printing pictures they want to use for their report from home. Pictures should be at school by Wednesday, February 27th. The Living Wax Museum is on Wednesday, March 6th from 11 to 11:30 AM. Children will be in costume and giving a one minute speech as part of their role in the Living Wax Museum.

Highlights Puzzlemania

I have received most Puzzlemania order forms. I am waiting on a few more. Email reminders will be sent out this week if your form has not be received.

Picture/ Spring Market Orders

Don't forget to turn in any order forms for pictures or Spring Market food purchases. This week is the last week for picture orders.

School Safety

As part of our efforts to make school a safe place, select doors will be unlocked at 7:30 AM. These doors include the 2 doors by the Gym and the Front Entrance. At 7:50 AM, 2 additional doors will unlock- carpool entrance along Amherst and loading dock door by the bike racks. All doors will be locked at 8:15 AM as usual.


To help enforce this new plan, please do not encourage/ ask to be let in from any of the locked doors. This will help make the new plan an easier transition. Thank you for your support!

Study groups will continue this week. We meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:15-3:45.
