Message from Ms. Masone:

Dear Families:

Thank you for joining us for conferences this week both virtually and in person. It was wonderful seeing each of you and celebrating your children.

Due to weather, our week was shortened, so we are going to extend the Book Fair through Thursday of next week. Join us in the morning or after school to choose a book.

Morning parking and drop off are available from 7:30-8:00am, at the Hiawatha Parking lot at Prospect Place and Manitou Avenue. You can also park at Manitou Congregational Church during that time as well.

The weather created havoc and our week was short! Despite the weather, the week was filled with fun and learning. First grade hosted a tea party on Valentine's Day that

This Month in Music:

In Music this February, Kindergarteners, 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders are getting ready for their programs in March, which is Music in Our Schools Month! While kindergartenrs will be performing in their first keyboard recital, 3rd graders will be showing all they have learned this year on the violin. Fourth graders will be showcasing their singing, along with some special small group features, and 5th graders will be playing some rock & roll classics.

Below, Ariana colors an invitation to the 3rd grade violin program for her family.

Thank you PAC

PAC provided a delectable meal for us on our planning day. The lasagna, pasta and salad made our day special. Thank you!
