Guided Reading Folders:
Everyone did a great job bringing their folders back and forth this week.  We will continue with this routine.  .   THESE BOOKS ARE NOT TO BE PLACED IN YOUR CHILD'S BOOK BOX AT HOME.  THEY BELONG TO MYSELF OR CRAM.  PLEASE RETURN THEM IN THE GUIDED READING FOLDER THE FOLLOWING DAY. Please understand that if your child does not return the folder with the book, I will not be sending a new book until it is returned.  I understand that sometimes books can get lost.  Books belonging to Cram will cost $10 if lost or damaged.  Please help your child be responsible and return the books daily.  



3 Piggy Opera:

I have assigned some parts.  These parts can change, depending on your child's attendance and their  ability to perform the part.  Every student will have a part in the play  I may make changes as the play practice continues.  

Our class will be doing a play on March 15th at 1:15 in the cafeteria.  We would love for you to come. All family and friends are invited to see our cute version of the 3 Pigs!  Cafeteria doors will open at 1:00 and the play will begin at 1:15 sharp.

Math Night
Volunteers Needed: If you can help on 2/28 in the cafeteria with Math Day, please contact me.
Our school will be having a family Math Night on February 28th.  This will be a fun night for the whole family.  Please see the flyer in your child's take home folder on Monday and mark your calendars.


Read Across America Day
Read Across America Day is March 2nd.  We will be celebrating by dressing up as a book character.  A flyer with information and rules to our dress up day came home last week.  I WILL be dressing up and hope to see 100% participation on this day.

Share Homework
The students have been doing a great job in writing!  Most of them are able to write 4-5 sentence stories.  I recommend that students spend more than one day writing their share homework.  That way they are able to challenge themselves and write a great story.  Thanks for your support!

Mixed Bag Fundraiser:
If you and your child participated in the Mixed Bag fundraiser, please send in all orders on Tuesday.  Thanks for helping our school earn money!
