News You Can Use!
Door Decor- Thanks Mrs. Robbins for our awesome winter scene on our classroom door. (See picture to the right.)
PAWS Pride Lesson-This week each class extended the concept of team by developing a class goal based on the behavior matrix. Each class will have the month of February to meet their goal by demonstrating the behavior at least 80% of the month. If they meet the goal as a team, they will be rewarded at the end of the month. Ask your child about the goal and reward their class decided upon.
Friendship Party- It will be Thursday, Feb. 11th. I have sent home a class list last week. If your child chooses to bring in Valentines please make sure they bring one for every student.

Definition of a myth:
Myths are stories that explain how things in nature came to be. Most myths are passed from generation until they are finally written down.
