Happy kids with new books for our classroom! Thank you so VERY much! :)

Spiral Math Review

You should be seeing your child's spiral math review coming home daily in their folder. We review these on Mondays only. They take their weekly check each Friday. Please review your child's work with them each night and help them correct any incorrect work. Thanks for your help!

Important Information

Vocabulary Expo

We are planning on holding our Vocabulary Expo next Tuesday morning. If you are interested in stopping by, please let me know so that I may give a "guest list" to the office. You will need to have a background check on file, including the anti-bullying video. If you are not able to attend, I will be taking lots of pictures!

Traditions Study

Next up in social studies we will study our family's traditions. Over the next two weeks, please help your child complete the questionnaire that will be sent home. Traditions can be many things; birthday traditions, holiday celebrations, family breakfast every Saturday morning, etc.

Children's Museum Volunteers

I have received many parents wishing to volunteer for our Study Trip to the Children's Museum. Reminder, these are due by Friday! On Friday, I will have the kiddos pick names out of a bucket and send an email with the names of the volunteers joining us. Thanks to all of our volunteers expressing interest!

Outdoor Recess

We will plan to go out to recess on days when the wind chill is 25 degrees and above. Please be sure to send your child with the appropriate recess gear. Students may not go in the snow unless they have snow boots.

Scholastic Book Fair

Thank you so much for your generous donations to our classroom! With your help, our class now has around 20 new books to read!

Lunch & New Background Checks

All guests and parent volunteers must have their background check completed prior to volunteering at school or having lunch with their child. The online background checks may take up to 6 days to process. You do not need to complete a background check prior to visiting if you have had one done in HSE within the past 3 years. ALL guests must also complete an online anti-bullying training webinar.
