What a wonderful week with your students! We had the pleasure of meeting Aaron Reynolds, our visiting author, on Thursday. Thank you PTA for providing this valuable experience for our students.
Pokemon cards are a great source of fun and entertainment for our children. They love looking at them and trading them with their friends. They have, however, become a source of distraction and disruption during our class instruction and lunch time. Please discuss with your child the proper place to trade the cards with their classmates.
Library Reading Incentives:
Six Flags Read to Succeed, "READING IS MY SUPERPOWER!" is taking place now! Each student can receive one free admission ticket to Six Flags when they complete 6 hours of reading. Be the first class with 100% participation and your class will be rewarded with a trophy and lunch in the library! Bring completed and signed forms to the library, and the student's name will be placed on the display in the main hallway. Students have until February 27th to return their forms. Contact the library with any questions at 428-2815.
If possible, please provide your child with ear buds for classroom use. This certainly helps reduce the noise level when our entire class is using the laptops.
