It's okay to not know, but it's not okay to not try.

CLASS NEEDS!!!

Our class is in need of a few things.

We are desperately in need of page protectors.  We went through about 120 page protectors prior to P.T.C.  The students use them in their portfolios.  It looks so much nicer when their work is displayed in page protectors.  I prefer the thicker page protectors you can get at Sam’s Club or Costco.  They are easier for the students to use.

I am also looking for someone to come into our classroom to talk about flag etiquette.  Perhaps someone in the military or someone who has retired from the military.  We will be talking about flag etiquette the week of Feb. 25th.  If anyone would like to come teach the students it would be greatly appreciated.  Let me know what works for your schedule and I’ll do my best to make it work.

Thank you in advance for helping our class with these needs.  We have a wonderful classroom of students and parents.  Have a wonderful Presidents Day weekend.

Ms. Amy

Valentine’s Day Party

Our Valentine’s Day party is coming up quickly.  Your children should have brought home a list of student and teacher names for our party.  If your child decides to give out Valentine’s please make sure he/she gives one to everyone in the class.

We have 4 teachers and 29 students in our classroom.  I don’t put names on my Valentine’s, I just put from Ms. Amy.  It makes it easier to hand them out.   Just a little teacher tip.

Thank you, the students are really excited.
