February Newsletter

Valentine’s Day Celebration
On Wednesday, February 14th, we will be having a celebration in the afternoon. Students can purchase Valentine’s Day cards to pass out. Please make sure that there is a card for every student. We have twenty-one students in our class. We will be having snacks and watching a movie. A class list is attached to the newsletter.

Winter Weather
Please make sure to send (LABELED) winter gear with your child each day (boots, snow pants, mittens, hat etc…). Children will not be able to play on the snowy/wet areas of the playground without boots. We go out for recess every day unless the wind chill or temperature is less than 10 degrees. It is a school rule that all children attend outside recess, unless they have a doctor’s note explaining why they cannot be outside.

BOOK-IT
Remember to keep up with Book-It.  Our goal is for all students in the class to read 450 minutes per month.  Please keep track of the minutes read each day. Return the signed calendar at the end of the month.  Your child will receive a coupon for a free pizza.

Classroom News
I am excited to announce that our class has the opportunity to participate in dance exercises/movements every Monday starting February 19th. On these days, students would want to be in comfortable fitting uniform pants, and tennis shoes please no skirts.

Character Counts
Our Character Counts winner for December and January for generosity was Chloe. The Math Award winner was Ian and the Writing Award winner was Dax. February’s character trait is trustworthiness. Please discuss this at home.

Homework
Some of you have been curious about homework.  A homework packet will be coming home with your student on Mondays and is to be returned on Fridays.  Please be sure to check and sign your child’s planner each night.  The planner is also a great place to communicate notes to school.

As always, if you have any questions, comments, or concerns about your student’s progress in class please contact me at (269)488-6324 between 7:30 am to 4 pm.
