Weekly Update:

Happy Friday!

I hope everyone had a safe and happy winter season! I will be back to work on Monday and I am looking forward to seeing everyone! I will definitely be missing my baby next week as I am sure all of you can relate to! Thank you all for being so supportive of Mrs. Stutt during her time here!

We will be having a Valentine's party on Friday. I will be sending home a list of student names. If your child brings valentines, they are expected to bring one for every student in the class. Below is the sign up for party supplies. We will be ordering pizza that day, so each child is asked to bring in $2.50 for their lunch.

Hopefully the students will do well transitioning back to me! I look forward to working with them through the end of this year and getting them ready for fourth grade! As always, please let me know if you have any questions or concerns!

Important Dates:

2/12 Valentine Lunch and Party

Volunteers and Chaperones

If you wish to volunteer in the classroom or chaperone field trips this year please go to the website and sign up. Also, you are welcome to visit your child at lunch, but due to liability, coming to recess is not allowed.


All students and parents must complete the iPad orientation this year. You also need to fill out the paperwork and send in the signature pages with your payment upon completing orientation. Hard copies will be sent home today with those students still missing paperwork! Students will be using these iPads for learning in the classroom, so it is very important that this is completed.

iPads will begin coming home with students who have paid the 35 dollar insurance fee will begin bringing iPads home Wednesday September 9th (Orientation must be completed as well).

All students will have access to iPads within the classroom.

Please let me know if you have questions regarding iPads.
