This Week

This week, on Thursday, we will have Outdoor Classroom Day (weather permitting).  Assuming it will be a good weather day, we will have lessons outdoors on Thursday.  If your child will need sunscreen/bug spray, please apply it before they come to school.  Please make sure that your child has sneakers for Thursday, as we will be very active!

Also, Friday is an early release day with dismissal at 12:15.  It's a good chance for you to start your Memorial Day Weekend a little early while I participate in professional development activities.  Fingers crossed for good weather!

100th Day and Valentine's Day

This is a big week!  On Tuesday we will celebrate the 100th day of school.  Children are invited (but not required) to bring in a small collection of 100 items.  For example, they may want to bring in 100 pennies, 100 paperclips, or 100 marbles.  This is a choice!  We are going to be making something with 100 items that I will provide, so every child will go home with something special.

On Thursday we are celebrating Valentine's Day.  We will exchange cards in the morning and have a special snack that is provided.  Please remember that Valentines should not contain any candy.  A class list went home last week.  Please let me know if your child won't be here Thursday, or if you have any questions.

Big Week!

We have a big week ahead!  This week we will be continuing to learn about holidays around the world.  We are excited to have Lukas's grandmother coming in Thursday to share the tradition of nutcrackers with our students.  Wednesday will be crazy hair/hat day, and Friday we will have our holiday party at 11:00 a.m. 

If you know your child is going to be out or you will be missing days to be with family/travel, can you please let me know ahead of time?  We are busy as elves, and I want to be sure that every child has a chance to complete their special project.
