HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

I hope you all had a wonderful break. I am glad that some more winter-like weather has decided to arrive! I am looking forward to having your babies back with me. It is hard to come back after the long break, but being able to see these kiddos sure makes it easier.

Mystery Readers

Kids LOVE being read to! Every other Friday we will host a Mystery Reader. Mystery Readers can be parents, grandparents, siblings, or other family members. This will be a 10-15 minute time block. You can bring in your favorite children's book….fiction, non-fiction, poetry, etc. If you're not sure what to bring, I can find a book for you, or you can read a chapter from our read aloud book. If you are interested in signing up for a Mystery Reader date, just send me a quick message.

Lost and Found

With the cooler temperatures setting in more students are coming to school with sweatshirts and jackets. You would be AMAZED how many end up in the school's lost and found. The best thing to do is put your child name on the tag so the item has a better chance of making it back to our class. If you know your child is missing something have them check the lost and found.

Volunteering at the School

If you would like to be a volunteer for the upcoming year please fill out the form found in this link. If you have filled this out in the past and your volunteer card has not expired, you do not need to fill another one out.

Constant Contact

To keep in constant contact with all things "Pirates" please subscribe to the IHES News.

I know this is gross, however....

In order to keep our building as germ free as possible it is important that you understand that children must be diarrhea free, vomit free, and fever free (without fever reducing medication) for 24 hours before they can return to school.
