I can’t believe we are finally in school on a Monday! I almost forgot what our Monday schedule was! Hopefully we are done with the snow and can get back to a routine. Please continue sending your student to school with all of his/her snow gear. We are trying to get the kids outside as much as possible. They are allowed to play in the snow if they have boots, snow pants, a hat, gloves and a jacket.
Next week is Read Across America Day. Please let me know if you are available to come in to read to the class. I have my father and my Auntie Linda coming in. We would love to have some parent volunteers too. I have a stack of books available if you are willing to come in and do not have a favorite book to read. Please email me or send in a note and we can set up a time and a day. If you cannot physically come into the classroom, we could Skype with you. Thank you in advance.
We have until Friday to bring in Box Tops for the pizza party contest. We were in the lead but I think another class has edged us out. Please continue sending them in and maybe we can reclaim that pizza party reward!
I am beyond impressed with the amount of money we already raised for Pennies for Patient. Our box is already full! Please continue sending in whatever you can. I suggested the class offers to do extra chores around the house to earn money to donate. Thank you for your generosity. I am constantly impressed with how kind this group of kids is.
I am sending home you conference sign up paper on Wednesday. I tried to give you the same day/time as the December conferences. A few people’s times were changed slightly to accommodate a change in my personal schedule. As always, I am willing to work with you to find a date/time that works if the one I picked for you does not work.
This Friday is Folder share! Please come in to see what your student has been doing. We’ve been very busy! Folder Share is from 8-9am. Hope to see you then!
