Pirate Weekly News
I want to tell you how proud I am of our class. I had to be out of the class on Wednesday and the substitute teacher said that this class was one of the best classes she has worked in. It was great knowing that the children were well behaved and respectful to the sub while I was out and they will be rewarded this week with a special treat!
Our class will have a Valentine Pizza Party on Friday. I have sent out a sign up Genius if you would like to sign up to bring in items for the party. Students may bring in Valentines to share with their classmates. We will be making Valentine bags in class and if you have any small shopping bags with handles please send them in because we our going to repurpose them to make our Valentine card holders.
Our special area schedule has changed for the 3rd nine weeks as follows:
Monday - Music, Tuesday -PE, Wednesday -Computer Lab, Thursday - Library/Guidance, Friday -Art
Please remember to wear sneakers on Tuesdays for PE!
