Parent Notes


This IS the math lesson for each day when assigned. I do provide time in the morning for those who forget, but it is much better for your child if they have watched the video and completed their practice at home prior to coming to school. Thanks for your help!

We will exchange Valentines on Friday, February 12th since Valentine's Day is on Sunday. I will send a class list by email.

The school carnival is coming in February. Our class will be creating a Class Basket for the carnival. Our theme will be "Minions Basket". FUN! THANKS TO JENNY BRITTEN For volunteering to coordinate our basket. THIS IS THE FINAL WEEK TO DONATE TO THE BASKET!

If you are interested in helping make this basket amazing, please send in an item(s) to add to it, or if you'd rather send money, that works too (your classroom coordinator will use the cash to add to the basket). All donations must be turned in to your classroom by Friday, February 12th, to give enough time to shop and create the basket. Also, if you send in an item(s), please include the gift receipt(s) and the value of each item.

* Here are just a few ideas of items that would make this basket fantastic:

Minions DVDs, books, toys, T-shirts, etc.

Thanks so much for your help! We can't wait to see this basket!
