Class News and Notes

The children really loved exchanging Valentines. They had a great time giving out valentines to each other. Valentine's Day is as exciting to kindergartners as Christmas.

Early Release/Conferences will be February 24 and 25. Additional conferences days/times are available, as well. You may sign up for a conference online through the PTCfast website.

I hope everyone is able to get into eClass for the homework. Let me know if you have any problems.

The class earned a popcorn "party" this week for demonstrating good listening. We are working on improving quiet work time and using inside voice levels.

Have a great Valentine's Day weekend!
