STUDENT Mystery Reader

Your child will receive a letter next Tuesday, Jan. 20th with a letter explaining the student mystery readers! Each child will be scheduled to read aloud a book of their choice to the class. They can practice the book many many times at home to be prepared and confident when reading to their peers. Students LOVE this activity and enjoy sharing their love of learning with all their classmates. On the back of the letter, you can see your child's designated date to read. Thank you for helping support extra practice at home!

Valentine's Day Party!

On Friday February 13th, we will be celebrating Valentine's day from 1:30 to 2:30.

Your child will be receiving two letters.

* One will be a list of names for Valentines and instructions of when to bring them into school (please do not bring them in until Wednesday Feb. 11th to pass out).

* The second letter will be about bringing a Red, White, or Pink gift wrapping bag to decorate for their Valentines. This party will be similar to our Fall Festival and we would love any and all family memebers to volunteer and help with a station or help donate items.

THANK YOU SO MUCH in advance for all you do to help volunteer and donate. We truly could not have an amazing celebration without help from all of you!
