Upcoming Events!

We will not have a spelling test this Friday due to it being a short week.  The same words will be on the test next Friday.

The students are learning to blog by themselves.  They have their own blog on Kidblogs.org.  If you are interested in getting emails when they post about their learning, please email me your email address.  They have been learning to write about their learning and screenshot pictures of the work they have done in class.  When they invite you to view their blog you will get an email each time your own child posts something.  It is a safe way to let the children have an audience.  You can also comment back about their learning.  They have done a great job learning this type of technology.

February 12, 2016 will be the date of our Valentine Party!  It will be from 12pm to 1pm.  The room mothers for this party will be contacting you for ideas, help with bringing items, and for help they will need at the party.  If you want to help in any way and you didn’t turn in a pink room mother sheet, please let me know and I will get your information to the room mothers.
