Parent Literacy Night

On February 10th at 5:30 we will have a parent literacy session with a focus on phonics. We will discuss the difference between traditional spelling and our current word study practices. We will also discuss typical phonics instruction used in our classrooms. Babysitting will be provided. We hope to see you!

PTO Update

EnRichmond: We are bringing back this popular 4-week after school enrichment program with some great new classes, as well as some old favorites! A complete list of this year's classes can be found here. Registration started this past Monday and closes on Friday, February 12th. This year, registration and payment will be online only using the Community Pass program, which you may be familiar with from registering your child(ren) for recreation programs in other communities. If you already have a Community Pass account, you can use your existing login information. If not, creating an account is fast and easy! Directions can be found here. We have already been getting some great feedback on Community Pass - thank you for helping the PTO in our effort to be more environmentally conscious!

Yearbook Alert: Sales will start at the end of this month! Be on the lookout for future updates.

Next PTO Meeting: Wednesday, February 10th at 6:30pm in the library. Hope to see you all there!
