Read Across America Parade

This FridaReadingy, March 2nd, we will be celebrating Read Across America Day. We will be celebrating with a parade of characters. If your child would like to dress up as one of his/her favorite characters you are more than welcome to. Costumes must be brought separately and students must wear standard attire during the day. Costumes must be related to a book and students may not wear masks or bring anything that resembles a weapon (no fake swords, guns, etc). This is not mandatory, it is simply to celebrate our love of literacy.


Book Fair @ STEM Night

Parents, please don’t forget that there is the STEM Night on Thursday!  What’s even better is that there will be books available for purchase.  Please see the attached form.  See you soon!  Bring the money and forms to STEM night.  Please do not send the money to school beforehand.  If you choose, there is an option for online purchase. Thanks!


Valentine’s Day Exchange and Other Reminders

Hi!  Wednesday is Valentines Day!  Our class will do an exchange.  Please have your child bring in a decorated box or bag to receive their Valentine’s Day treats.  There are 25 children in our class.  Please do not worry about individually addressing each treat/gift.  Have your child simply do something like this:


This will help save some time (and a little Valentine’s Day chaos).
