Join us at Sparkles for our “Skate Night” on Tuesday, March 1st, from 6:00 – 9:00 pm! Family and friends are all welcome! There will be skating, music, and even an indoor playground, which is great for those little ones who cannot skate. They have Laser Tag too! Remember you have to pay for Laser Tag at time of entrance to get the discount to play, otherwise they will charge you full price ($3.00 per game) if you decide to play later. Bring your appetite! Sparkles has lots to choose from on their menu. All the information and prices will be on the small white flyer that will come home with your kids. Please fill it out and bring it with you to Sparkles for our drawing. Remember kids, the class with the most participants will win a fun class party. Come and join us for some fun on Tuesday, March 1st, from 6:00 - 9:00 pm. Hope to see you there!


Weekly Reading Logs

Parents - please make sure your child has their reading log filled out to receive credit. Logs without your child’s first and last name, the teacher’s name, and a signature are not counted for the week and are returned to the child. Also, a reminder that data for online reading logs is only pulled from Thursday-Monday. Any logs turned in outside of these dates are not counted.

Character Dress Up Day

Book Character Dress-Up Day will be on Friday, March 4th. All children are encouraged to come dressed as their favorite book character. Please have your child bring a copy of the book with them to school that day. If you don’t have the book, a picture of the book cover (not just the character) is acceptable. Finally, costumes must be non-violent, not scary, and should not have a mask.

To be randomly selected as a winner in our Box Tops and Soup Labels contests, you have to send your Box Tops and soup labels in! To be included in the monthly drawings, please make sure to turn in any Box Tops or Soup Labels by the last Friday of each month.

Important: Please send your labels or Box Tops in a plastic zip lock bag with your child’s name, teacher’s name and grade neatly printed on a piece of paper inside the bag. This is really important so that I can make sure your child gets credit for their submitted labels and Box Tops. Please trim along the dotted lines on the Box Top or Soup Labels as it helps us get them processed much faster. Unfortunately, we cannot accept Box Tops that have expired or are missing the expiration date.

If you have any questions, please contact Sharon Kosmala, 404-661-8907 or email at
