Hello Dear Parents,

another week is gone and we are into the last week of February.

Some fun and activities are coming this week with the start up of our Literacy Week. We hope that you are getting informed about all what is happening and if possible to participate! The Theme for this week is Reading Helps You Reach for the Stars”.

The first thing that you need to know is that tomorrow Monday we will start the Book swap week. That means that if you have any books at home that you would like to share with the school please send it with your child tomorrow and then your child will be able to exchange them for others.

Spelling Bee is going to be in the big gym on Tuesday at 9:30 am. If your child is participating in the spelling bee you are welcome to attend with your family.

Literacy Night is this Thursday from 5:30-7:00 pm and we encourage all parents to attend. It will be a great event to participate!

Something else to prepare ahead is next home projects are due the week of March 16th. These are based around zoology. 

This is for First Grade Students will be assigned a specific category of vertebrate animal (fish, amphibian, reptile, bird, or mammal). The following are things they will be expected to cover in their presentation:

Provide an example of a specific animal in the category they have been assigned (e.g. salmon, seagull, frog, llama, etc.) Provide interesting facts about their specific animal. Describe the general characteristics of the type of animal (e.g. Feathers, warm blooded, lays eggs, etc.).
Describe the habitat it lives in. (e.g. water, land, both, etc.)

This is for Second Grade Students will need to research the category of invertebrate animal that they have been assigned. The following are things they will be expected to cover in their presentation:

How it looks– its physical characteristics
Where it lives
How it moves
How and what it eats
Other interesting facts

This is for Third Grade Students will research a biome that is located on the continent their class is studying for the second semester. They will need to include information about the climate(weather, temperature, etc.), natural resources, people, plants, and animals. They should also have a picture of a map that shows where this biome is located. Biome of Europe(South side)/ Africa(North Side).

As today , Sunday we have only one parent signing up for snacks for the class. (Thank you Amanda Keener !)

Your children are expecting to have some kind of snack during the morning especially on Tuesdays when they have lunch at 12:30 due to specials.  We will have to ask parents to send an individual snack with your child this week if no more parents sign up.

There is a sheet created on Track it Forward for you to see and sign for your convenience. I will let you know by Tuesday if that is the case. I appreciate your understanding.

I also created a sign up sheet for the GALA event for you to see and sign up. Please take a look at it . Thank you!

Thank you again for your support !!

Parents in Room 5 are awesome!

Ms Pat and Mr Zoelan.
