*** Your child will need to bring a decorated box/bag to collect their Valentine cards on Friday. Also, please remember that we have a peanut allergy.


· The book report for February is fantasy (imaginative) fiction. We are encouraging the students to choose a book that is at least on, and hopefully a bit above, grade level. By now, they have a solid understanding of the expectations, and now is the time to start stretching those fundamental skillsets.


Please encourage your child to take advantage of the computer-based math programs your child can access from home! Contact me if you’ve forgotten the password information.

  • Please make sure that your child is reading each night. This is so important as it will help them to become better readers. We want their endurance to continue to grow. The STAAR test will be long and require a lot of reading. :)
