Weekly Update

Dear Paloma Families ~

Thank you, Paloma Family, for your support and participation in our Kids' Heart Challenge last Friday and it was great to see so many of our families at the PTA Family Sweetheart Dance, too! February is a special month of recognizing and learning about Black History Month, Lincoln's Birthday, Washington's Birthday, and Susan B. Anthony Day. Classrooms will be discussing and learning about the contributions of so many important Americans.

This week the PBIS behavior standard is Listening to Others and we will be reviewing the Location Expectation for the Bathroom. (See additional information below for details).

Please be sure to read the flyer about try-outs for our annual Variety Show! (see attached Flyer below!)

Remember this week and next week are 4-day school weeks. There is no school this Friday, 2/14 or Monday, 2/17 in recognition of Lincoln's and Washington's birthdays.

Have a great week!

WE ARE Panthers, WE ARE Kind, WE ARE 'Pawsitive', WE ARE Learners, WE ARE Paloma!!!
