Valentine’s Party:
We will be celebrating Valentine’s Day on Wednesday, February 14th. In the afternoon, we will exchange cards, eat snacks, and watch a movie. There was a more detailed note sent home. Let me know if you need a new note!

Snow Days:
In the event of a snow day you can find the school closings on Channel 3 and 8 and their websites. Televised and online school closings are normally posted by 6:30am. Please do not call the school regarding school closings.

Sock Hop:
Forest Academy’s annual Sock Hop will take place on Friday, February 9th at 5pm until 7pm. It will be $5 per family at the door. The committee is looking for donations of non-peanut baked goods. If you are interested in donating, please send them with your student to school on Friday the 9th. Thank you!

Cold Weather Gear:
We will be having more days where it is chilly at recess.  Please make sure to send the appropriate clothing for your child.  This will help prevent us from getting sick.  Please put the name of your child in the jacket so if it gets left on the playground we can return it easily.  Also, please send in a pair of or change of boots or shoes for outside play to be used at recess time.  If you would like to leave a pair at school they can keep them in their locker.  This will prevent our classroom from becoming muddy.

Yearbook:
Yearbooks will be going on sale soon! They are $16 each. Orders will be due by Friday, March 19th. You can also order online at ybpay.lifetouch.com using yearbook ID code: 11185118.

Pizza Hut Book It!:
Don’t forget to keep reading over the month of February! If you read every day this month, fill out your book it form and turn it in at the end of the month, you will receive a coupon for a free personal pan pizza from Pizza Hut! I have attached the calendar to the newsletter! If you have any questions about the program or need a new calendar, please let me know! Nothing is better than a free pizza!

At Home Activity Ideas:

-February is Black History Month, which is when we celebrate African Americans who have made important contributions to our country. This would be a wonderful time to research and learn about a famous African American with your child.

-Read for Book It and turn in your form to earn a free personal pan pizza.

-Make a valentine for a family member or friend and mail it. Maybe they will send one back!

-Write some story problems together and practice    subtraction and multiplication facts.
