Friday, February 5th
We have an OREO activity to go along with our opinion writing unit next Friday the 12th. If you would like to donate a package Oreos it would be helpful. You can send them in anytime next week. We just ask that you send them in by Thursday so we can see if we need any more for the activity. Ask your student why we are using the word "OREO" in opinion writing. They will probably want to show you the song on YouTube. Here is the link to that song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hUP5hG4IIQM
We will be passing out Valentine's on Friday the 12th. Please do not make a box or bag at home, we will make one at school for students to put their valentines in.
