Message to Parents

Dear Parents,

I hope you and your family had a relaxing and restful winter break and New Year's! We are excited to begin the 3rd nine weeks of school. Our 3 day specials rotations this nine weeks will include PE, Music, Art.

Second grade will be attending a field trip to the Aurora Theater on February 2nd. Students will be learning about fairy tale and folk tale story elements in reading this month. We have the opportunity to see "Goldilocks and the Three Bears: A Musical". l will be sending home a field trip permission sheet in the Friday folders that needs to be signed and paid for by Friday, January 15th. Cash payments may be sent in as well as a check (please write your child's name on the check & the purpose for the check) Payment is also encouraged on which the fee can be paid for by debit or credit card.

$10 will cover the entrance fee to the play and the bus transportation to and from the location. No need to bring a sack lunch, we will eat in the cafeteria at our normal lunch time after the field trip.
