-In Language Arts we are reading about and discussing creativity. So, Monday, January 29th each student will create an individual Recycled Creation. Please send in clean boxes, string, cans, bottles, (make sure they are washed and no glass), etc., anything that is lying around your house. We will turn junk into masterpieces! We will display our finished product in the Media Center. Happy hunting!
-After School Enrichment:
The classes are starting Monday so sign up soon! There are great classes that the children love attending. It’s also a good way to avoid the after school traffic while providing your child a fun learning and social experience.
January's Community Service - The Great Kindness Challenge
Our school will be participating in The Great Kindness Challenge the week of Jan 22-26th. We will have a class checklist of different ways we will be showing kindness and keeping track of all the fun and loving things we can do. Feel free to enjoy the week of kindness at home as well.
HERE is a family checklist
HERE is a link to the website for more info and watch an inspiring GKC video
-Before you know it Valentine’s Day will be here. We will be having a Valentine’s craft time on Wednesday, February 14th at 10:45-12:00. If you would like to Volunteer please let me know.
Here are a couple guidelines:
-If your child wants to participate, he/she must have a valentine for everyone in the class, not just some of the children.
-Your child must write the names on the outside of each envelope.
-Making valentines cards is a fun craft and the children really enjoy receiving homemade cards better than the store bought ones. So please start making valentine cards with your child. We will talk about how to create cards to give your child some ideas. (If you already bought them, that’s ok. It’s just a suggestion.)
Valentine's Craft Party
I need 4 parent volunteers who will help students at a craft station. Please email me if you're interested.
-It is fine if you would like to attach a little candy treat however, because of our focus on heath, a pencil or small toy would be better but not required, kind notes are just as good.
