Mrs.Licari's Letter

February 2016

Dear Room 204 Families,

Our mid year testing window is now closed and I am very, very pleased with how the students performed. I have been able to look over their new data and plan accordingly for the second half of the year. I look forward to sharing their growth with you at conferences next month. Thank you for your commitment to the nighttime good fit reading assignments and to utilizing the paid memberships for REFLEX MATH (basic fact practice) and IXL (grade level skill development).


Our Valentine's Day Celebration will be on Tuesday, February 14 . Each child is being asked to create a Valentine's Day box for their cards. It should have a hole big enough for small treats and cards. It should also have your child's name on it. Those boxes are due February 13- (please do not send them in early, my counter space is so limited).


Another great activity new for third grade is JUMP ROPE FOR HEART. Our PE teacher Mrs. Onopa in conjunction with the American Heart Association will be working with students during the school day on February 7 to raise money for heart disease research. The children love this activity and it is a hi-lite we look forward to each February. In the information packet there are directions for creating a web page to collect pledges. My daughters choose to collect their pledges this way and it was really fun to create and follow. Try it for some winter fun!
