February 2014 SHORT WEEK

Hello Families,

Thank you to all the families that donated items or their time to make our Valentine party such a fun event! Also, thank you for the many sweet treats, cards, flowers and gifts! I feel so lucky and loved.

We have a short week this week. Students have a holiday on Monday, Feb. 17. Wednesday at 8:00 am is the K-3 Variety show morning performance. Thursday is college shirt day. Thursday night at 6:00 pm is the Evening Variety Show performance. Lots going on!!

I am happy to report that our Super Sleepover basket fetched a "whopping" $160 at the Homestead Auction! That is fantastic! Thank you so much for your generous donations for the school fundraiser.

In your child's Take Home Folder there is an assignment for weather over the weekend. I don't usually give weekend homework, but I thought that would be a great time for kids to explore weather.com or the TV news weather forecast to see for themselves some of the things we have been discussing at school. Speaking of weather, I'm THRILLED that the forecast looks warm and sunny for next week. We have had WAY TOO MANY inside recess days lately and I know we are all excited to get outside and enjoy some sunshine!

Enjoy the long weekend!
