Construction Update

Over the break the prep work for the new front entry way doors began along with prep work on the office wall. This work was completed and should not interfere with our day to day happenings from now until spring break. The picture below shows what the front entry way looks like along with a few work in progress images!

March Is Reading Month

We are excited for March Is Reading Month! We will be kicking it off with 'Hats Off To Reading' on Friday, February 28th. Students may wear a school appropriate hat of their choice for $1. That day they will be bringing home a READO (bingo) board. During the month of March, please help your child work on their board to get a bingo. Once they have gotten one, they will need to turn their board into their teacher. Every student that turns in his/her sheet by March 31st will earn a FREE ticket to a game at Jimmy John's Field. Please have your child read his/her copy (or you can read it to them) of Beatrice Zinker Upside Down Thinker as we will be having weekly trivia questions from the book. If you should have any questions please feel free to contact Mrs. Reynolds (nicole.reynolds@uticak12.org).
