Hi Warwick Bears!
I hope that everyone had a wonderful winter break! Here are few helpful reminders as we kickoff the new year!
- Our school day starts at 9:05AM. Students can begin arriving at 8:45AM.
- If students are arriving by our carline, whenever possible, please have students exit on the passenger side. We always have adults at the carline to help. Please do not pass other cars in the carline for the safety of our students and staff.
- All students and staff must wear a mask at all times, with the exception of mask breaks, snack, and lunch. When students are on mask breaks and/or eating they will be 6 feet apart.
- Please review the travel form, health check reminders, and additional resources below.
- Remind students to dress appropriately for the weather (i.e. hats, gloves, etc.). As long as it is not raining, the students will go outside for recess and mask breaks.
If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to reach out to me.
Thank you for your constant support!
Mrs. Amy Adelman
Warwick's Winter Reading Challenge
Dear Warwick Families,
We hope you are all having a great week. Mrs. Adelman, Mrs. Landis and Mrs. Wicen are excited to share a reading challenge we are going to be rolling out next Friday, January 15th.
We are calling it Warwick’s Winter Reading Challenge- Cozy Up With a Good Book. The details are as follows:
- The kickoff for our schoolwide reading challenge will be Friday, January 15th.
- On this day, we are asking everyone to wear their pajamas and bring in their favorite book.
- During class, students will create their own “mugs” of hot chocolate using their favorite book.
Now for the schoolwide reading challenge …
We are going to be challenging students to spend time reading every night. This could be for 10 minutes or 60 minutes. No matter the amount of time, we want to encourage reading every day.
To do this:
- We will be providing students with their own reading calendars where they can record their daily reading. All the kids have to do is have a grown-up sign their name each night the student reads.
- Students will be asked to return their calendars to school on Fridays.
- For every night students read, classes will earn “marshmallows.” The marshmallows will be added to their class’ “hot chocolate mug”.
- Students will have from January 15th through February 12th to read and earn marshmallows.
- Please send any pictures of students reading at home during our reading challenge to be included in our school yearbook to the following e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org!
- Each night of the reading challenge, please check our Warwick website for a special guest read aloud video - first link and video will be shared in next week's newsletter!
As a culmination to our challenge on February 12th, we are asking everyone to wear their pajamas once again and bring in another book to read at school. Your child can even bring in a flashlight to do flashlight reading!
Now the best part…
Since this is a challenge, the class that earns the most marshmallows will win an outdoor hot chocolate party! We will hold this party on Friday, February 19th.
Thank you in advance for your support with this reading challenge!! We are really excited to get cozy and read this Winter!!
