4th Grade – Bottema

February Newsletter

We are officially half way done with the school year.  Here are some things that we want to remind you about and give you information for in the month of February!

Sock Hop!   Forest Academy’s 6th annual sock hop will take place on Friday, February 10th  from 5 P.M. to 7 P.M.  This sock hop will include fun family dancing, in your socks, punch, and sweet treats.  Tickets may be purchased at $5 per family.  Your ticket price will also include refreshments.

4th Grade Valentines Day Party: On Tuesday, February 14th  we will have a classroom party.  This will not be a center based party like others in the past.  Instead we will split the students up into two groups.  One group will be making a Valentines day treat, while the other group is completing a craft project.  Half way through, students will switch!  We don’t need donations or volunteers during this party.  Students are encouraged to bring in valentines for all classmates.  A class list will be sent home for valentines.

Tips For Parents:  Please work with your child on practicing multiplication and division math facts at home.  You can also have your child read to you every night and then ask questions on what he/she just read.

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.

Contact Us: Please feel free to contact us with any questions, comments, or concerns at 488-2315  between 7:30 A.M. and 4:00 P.M.  Thank you for your continued support!

Thank You,
Mrs. Bottema and Ms. Grandy
