Families - Happy New Year!

There have been a few changes so far this year. Four friends are now students next door, with the new teacher, Mr. Ackerson. We are excited that we still get to spend Encore time with them everyday though! We are also missing our friend, Rylee, who moved to a new city over Winter break. We are excited to see her soon when she visits.

As the new year starts, we are wrapping up Unit 3 in both Spelling and Math. The Unit 3 math test will be on Friday, January 15th. We are also starting a new science unit that is all about Structures of Life. We began with seeds this week and are investigating the many seeds found in fruits!

We have also been working a lot on possessives. Please remind your child to "use those apostrophes!"

As always, feel free to e-mail, call, or stop in if you have questions. Thanks for being such wonderful role models to your awesome children. :)

Important Dates:

Thursday, Jan. 21- Snow Day Fun. Please send snow pants, boots, hats, and mittens with your child. We will get to spend some time outside making snowmen, sledding, and doing other winter activities as a class & school!

Friday, Jan. 22- Early Release. Students will be dismissed at 12:20pm.

Monday, Jan. 25- No School
