Week of February 11, 2019

Good Morning,

Next week is full of excitement and fun!

First, we kick off our school wide fundraiser Pasta for Pennies on Monday with an assembly. Donation boxes will come home with your child in their homework folder on Monday.

To support Pasta with Pennies your child can wear spirit wear on Wednesday for $1. All the money will go straight to the foundation. If you don’t wish to participate, please come to school in regular uniform.

Tuesday is our 100th day of school! We will celebrate by working on some STEAM activities in the afternoon. We need some help with some items. If you would like to donate something from our list below, please let us know. We really appreciate it!

·         100 candles

·         6 containers of play dough

·         100 pipe cleaners

·         100 cookies (chips ahoy brand would be best, because we are building a structure with them)

·         100 plastic cups- all the same type

Thursday is Valentine’s Day! We have a class of 31 students, please write your child’s name in the from section. It makes passing out the Valentine’s quick. We will have a Valentine Exchange and fancy snacks from 2:15 to 3:05. If you would like to help with anything for the party, please check our Shutterfly account for a sign-up list. Please come by and celebrate with us if you can.

Finally, there is no school Friday, the teachers have professional development that day. There is also no school on Monday in honor of President’s Day. Enjoy the long four-day weekend!
