Welcome back! We hope everyone had a restful week off!
The children were encouraged to read books on their own this week and if they come back to school with one simple book report, they earn a prize from our treasure chest! What a great response. I'm so proud of them!
This week we will be entering the Lenten season. Children will be encouraged to help out at home and do good deeds for others. Every time they do a good deed they will decorate their individual cross with colored tissue paper and by Easter we should see a most colorful cross of good deeds. They will simply tell me the act of kindness that they did . Students will also receive their mission banks to save some money in during Lent.
We have church on Wednesday at 8:30 AM.
Our reading this week will be supplemented with many Dr. Seuss activities as we celebrate his birthday this Thursday.
REMINDER: REGISTRATION FORMS NEED TO BE SENT IN!
Children should be reading everyday for about 15 minutes to practice decoding skills and high frequency words.
