Classroom News from Mrs. Weatherly

  • Mrs. Rehan will return on Monday. It has been my joy to work with your children these last seven weeks. They are amazing and wonderful.
  • All library books were due on Monday. If your child has books that have not been turned in there is a reminder in your child's folder. Books that are lost must be paid for. Your money is refunded when you find and return the books.
  • A few students have not yet returned enrollment forms for next year. There are reminders in the folders of students who still need to return the forms.
  • Check the folder also for information about the Bell Prairie Summer Reading Program.
  • Our Book Swap was a great success and those who donated books brought so many that every student got to take home one new book. Great job!
  • On Tuesday this week we learned about Monarch Butterflies and we planted Milk Weed seeds to support the Monarch population.
  • Please be sure to remove all the papers from your kindergartner's folder every night. Some folders are filling up with work your child has completed at school. Take these papers out and let your child explain the work at home.
