Dear Families:

Welcome Back!
I hope that everyone had a very restful, and relaxing winter break!

The copy machine was not working for a good part of yesterday and today, so no homework packet was sent home today. No worries, the packet will be sent home tomorrow. Please check your student's backpack. If you need more time to complete the packet, please let me know.

We had a fantastic field trip to the Asian Art Museum on Tuesday! The docents were engaging and the children loved the adventure! Many thanks to the parents who were able to make on this trip! We will have several more chaperoning opportunities this year if you would like to join us on another adventure.

Our next field trip is tentatively scheduled for Thursday, February 13th. (We will hopefully have confirmation by the end of this week). We will going up to Zellerbach Hall at Cal to watch "Sweet Honey in the Rock" perform.

If you have any questions or concerns, please email me at:

Thank you,
Susanne Reed
