Hello Forest Families! We are rounding the corner to spring finally! Our month of February will be filled with many enriching learning experiences. Our chemistry studies will continue with the amazing experiments we do during class time! We are continuing with Literature Circles. Our students have been given choices of Literature Circle books and have weekly discussions about them!

February will be an exciting month! We are starting to move into more challenging material and to prepare for seventh grade!  Students will enjoy a Read-In Day on February 7th. They may bring in a pillow OR a blanket, and a candy of their choice for our Read-in day!  Also, on February 21st we
have a field trip to the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts.  The art show is called, “My Hero,” which is superhero art, we will also create our
own!

Field Trip Volunteers:  We have a morning only field trip to KIA on February 21st.
We need drivers! Driver Permission forms will be coming home soon! We have begun reading the Time Life for Kids magazine! This allows us to practice citing textual information from our around the world information!

Internet Safety: Your student has been learning about being safe on the internet and ways that you and your family can improve on internet safety! Make a family plan to stay safe while surfing the internet! Protect your identity!  Make sure your student is reading for at least twenty minutes a night!  Talk with your student about what they read!  Also, if you receive the newspaper, or other periodicals, read with them and once again, check for
understanding! Finally, take the family outdoors!  There are many opportunities to enjoy
Michigan, even during these cold months!

Our winter NWEA has come to an end, and we were quite successful! Way to go!
