Week of February 20-22
Super short week since we are already to Wednesday and I am just getting around to updating!
Important Dates and Reminders:
Thursday, February 23 – BINGO NIGHT (5:00-8:00) and NO HOMEWORK NIGHT!!
Open House next Friday, March 3th! Drop by between 7:30 and 8:45 to catch a glimpse of what we do each day. Your child will be your guide and will happily show you around the classroom as well as other areas of school. Be sure to pick up an Open House checklist when you get to the classroom. Open House is "come and go," so feel free to sleep in a bit if you wish. There will be no morning assembly. Our actual school day will begin at 8:45. Hope you can make it!
Thursday, March 9th - Kite Day during PE (11:45-12:35). You are welcome to join your child on the soccer field during that time to fly kites (for safety reasons, no siblings please). So so fun! The Booster Club has generously purchased kites for each child and they have been delivered to our classroom. Our 5th grade buddies will be putting them together for us. Woohoo!
