. . .and we will see you back on February 22!

Due to our Black History Program Friday morning, weekly testing will be on Thursday.

St. Valentine Dance, February 11th

Don't forget to take your special Valentine to the PTO sponsored Mommy Son, Daddy Daughter Valentine dance this Thursday, February 11th at 5:30 pm.

Valentine Party - Friday, February 12th

Our St. Valentine's Day Party will be Friday, February 12th at 1:30. We have a parent that has volunteered to bring the students treats and Mr. Earnest and I will supply the drinks and paper products. If you would like to send some treats, please put them in goody-bags that can be sent home with the students.

If you would like to send Valentines with your child to pass out, please DO NOT put individual names on the envelopes. We only have 30 minutes to enjoy our party and it would take too long to pass out specific Valentines to each student. We have 20 students. Thank you for your understanding.

Math and Reading Website - Front Row

Our new APTT focus skill is "Counting on." Front Row is a great internet site to practice this skill.


Simply click on the link above or scan the QR code that is located to the left. It will take you to the site. Type in your child's first and last name and the CLASS CODE qbddea.

Then select "Math" to practice math skills.

Finally select Counting & Operations to practice the "Counting On" skills I have assigned

I will be checking the website on a regular basis to check on student progress as well as assigning new practice sessions. Students will be able to earn "coins" and I will be highlighting those students who have earned the most coins.

Front Row Student of the Week - Conner Scaff

Another Congratulations to Conner who has earned 1335 coins in completing his assignments in Counting and Operations! If you haven't tried Front Row, give it a try and see how many coins your student can earn!

Kindergarten Bake Sale

We will continue to have our in-class Bake Sale, thank you to all who have supported it. So far we have raised enough money to buy the Osmo program for our iPads. Our new goal is to raise enough money to pay for our weekly newsletter that you receive through email.

Please remember that all the money we raise directly benefits your child's classroom and ultimately, your child's education. All snack items are .50 each.
