March Newsletter

Weather Watch
The weather outside is still chilly and potentially snowy. Please continue to send coats, hats, boots, snow pants and mittens with your child.  Also, please remember to LABEL all clothing! In case of severe weather, stay tuned to channels 3 and 8, as well as the major radio stations for school closing information.  This information should be posted by 6:30 a.m.

March Is Reading Month
This year for March Is Reading Month our theme is “Read Around The World!” There are many fun activities and “spirit”/dress-up days planned to help us celebrate this special month! Look for a detailed calendar to come home soon that will explain all of our special activities. We hope you participate in March Is Reading Month by helping your child read lots of books at home. We are very excited! Happy Reading! :smile:

Book It!
Attached is the March reading sheet for the Book It! program.  The Kindergarten goal is for all students to read at least 24 books with an adult this month. (This can also be counted for the Read-A-Thon that the PTO is sponsoring.) Please return the signed “Reading Is Yummy” worksheet by Friday, March 31st and your child will receive a coupon for a free personal pan pizza at Pizza Hut!

Character Counts
Last month’s character trait was Respect.  We watched the students carefully and chose 2 students who we felt best exhibited this trait. Congratulations to the February Character Counts winners – Donovan P. and Haleigha M.! This month’s character trait that we will be working on is Perseverance.  Please encourage your child to practice this trait at school. :smile:

Let’s have a Marvelous March!
