January 29th - February 2nd

We had some fun sledding on Friday!

Field Trip to Demcon

On Wednesday, February 7th our class and Mrs. Kornder's class will be taking a field trip to Demcon. We should be leaving around 1:00pm and returning by 3:15. We will eat lunch like normal in the cafeteria, and just cut recess a little short for the day.

Valentine's Day

On Wednesday, February 14th students can bring in a Valentines treat if they would like. We will make compliment cards for each other at school, so no need to purchase cards. If you plan to purchase a treat, we have 25 students in our class. Please NO cupcakes, cookies, or large desserts. And, please keep in mind that we have peanut/tree nut allergies in our class. Thanks!

Math MCA - the week of April 30-May 4

Students will be taking the MCA tests on their school issued iPads. If your child does not have headphones or earbuds, it would be helpful to purchase a pair or borrow some from home. I have some headphones to loan out, but currently do not have enough for everyone who needs them.
