Hey Folks!

First of all I want to thank you all for your continued support!  Thank you to Henry’s family for Snack last week.  We are in need of snacks. Please get on Track it forward to sign up .  Your kiddos will very much appreciate the healthy snacks!

We have got a busy week !

We are continuing our study on South America.  Level 1 will make a map of South America and label the countries. Levels 1-2 will pick a South American country to research.

Tuesday is our field trip to the Union Station. We will be leaving the school at 12:30. Jen Whetton  is Kindly helping me out with carpool. If your child needs a ride please let me know so we can make sure all has transportation to and from the field trip.

Tuesday evening…

Big picture

During literacy week students can bring books for the book swap. This is a great opportunity to share books with one another. Secondly, each student should bring in a picture of the cover of their favorite book to hang on the art strip outside of their classroom. If printing a picture is not an option, your student can draw the cover. We would like our older students, specifically Upper El and Jr. High, to include a short summary of their book and what they liked about it. We want students to be able to walk around the school and see books that they might be excited to read!

Throughout the week we encourage students to be reading at home and at school. Our literacy committee created a beautiful tree in the front of the school. Each time a student reads a book, they get to add a leaf to the tree. Please encourage your student to spend time at home reading lots of books! We want our tree to be full of leaves!

Lastly, we will have a read-a-thon on Friday from 10:00-11:00am. Students are encouraged to bring books from home to enjoy. Please no pillows, blankets, or stuffed animals.

We will have professional development on Friday, March 15th. Students will be released at 1:00pm.Don’t forget, there is no school for students on Monday, March 18th as our professional development continues.
