Weekly News: February 6-10


Mark your calendars for two three-day weekends coming up in a row, as there is no school next Monday, February 13th and no school on Monday, February 20th. 

We are so excited for our field trip on Tuesday! We will be leaving school around 8:15 and returning around 12:45. Mark your calendars and adjust schedules for the late pick up on this day and please note that your child may be missing any electives they may have on this day. On Tuesday, please pack your child a lunch in a paper bag with his or her name. No lunch boxes please. We will be eating our “sack” lunches at the museum following the tour.  Chaperones can ride the bus with us or follow. Don't forget that chaperones will need to pay a $5 cash fee at the door, but for student admission, please donate $15 into our Kindergarten Dollar a Day fund. This donation will help cover the cost of the tickets and bus. Here is the link: Dollar A Day. 

We will be celebrating Valentine's Day together after our three day weekend next Tuesday. Thank you so much for all of the Capri Sun boxes {and thank you to the parents who wrapped them!} These will be used as our Valentine's Mailboxes. If your child would like to make valentines for the class, a list of boys and girls names were sent home last week. This is great writing practice for your child. Please check the sign-up on ParentSquare if you would like to donate towards our fun Valentine's Day centers or volunteer on this day.

Remember that if you are absent for two or more consecutive days, we ask you to please sign up for independent study in the office. You may back-date this as well - meaning, there is still time to make up for days missed in the past!
