We will be celebrating Valentine’s Day on Tuesday, February 14th in the afternoon. Please see the list of student names that will be coming home with a letter about it on Friday, February 3rd. Please also send in a shoe box for us to decorate at school.
Make sure to send in your January calendars so that your child can earn their free pizza. Ask your student to read to you before bed, read to a sibling, or to their stuffed animal. It is very important that they continue to work on using their sight words they already know and keep building up their vocabulary. It would be great if the students could read at least five days a week to help build confidence in the reading process.
