Weekly Happenings

Students will be bringing home their goal notebooks today. They are so excited to share their progress with you. Ask your student to show you the targets they have mastered and the ones they still need practice on. Something we are working really hard on in our goal notebooks is spelling all of our vowel sounds on vowel town and reading them on the rivers included. Please send goal notebooks back on Monday.


On February 13th we will be celebrating with friendship parties. If you student would like to bring Valentine's Day cards we will be exchanging that day. If you child chooses to send valentines please send one to everyone in their class. An email will be coming home soon with a class list of names. You do not need to make a valentines box or bag. We will take care of that at school.
