Mrs. Myerson's Classroom News - Week of February 8th

A Note from Mrs. Myerson

This week will be another review/testing week, so there will be no spelling or sight words to practice. Also, Monday and Tuesday are Abbreviated days (2:05 dismissal) for Parent Teacher Conferences. Conferences will be held Monday 2:30-4, and Tuesday 6:00-7:40. I hope to see you there! (The Book Fair will be open during conferences, too!)


Also on Thursday we will hold our Valentine's Day party for our classroom. If you signed up to donate items please send those in this week. Also, students will be delivering their Valentine's Day cards to friends throughout this entire week.

Meet Mrs. Myerson!

I am a wife, and a "mommy" to my lab-pit, Chance. I love to read, dance, sing, be creative, organize, decorate, and spend time with my family and friends! I am an 8th year teacher in Vineland, and truly passionate about my job! Making learning fun for my students and sparking their curiosity is what I'm all about.
