Remember that clocks spring ahead one hour this Saturday night. This will make the students very tired next week. Please encourage your child to make wise choices throughout the day. They will be especially excited with the fun of Winter Carnival dress up days. Please refer to my blog post on February 28 for specific details regarding the dress up days. In brief, the dress up days are:
Monday, March 11 – Pajama Day
Tuesday, March 12 – Summer Beach Day (no swimsuits please)
Wednesday, March 13 – Favorite Things Day
Thursday, March 14 – Crazy Hat/Hair Day
Friday, March 15 – Backwards Day
All costumes must be able to be worn under a snowsuit, as we will be playing outside at recess time.
Tuesday at lunch time, the elementary students will be having a picnic lunch in the fellowship hall. The grades 5 & 6 class will be selling cupcakes for $1 each. If you would like your child to have a cupcake, please send in $1 by his/her agenda on Tuesday. There will not be order forms going home.
Tuesday’s show and tell theme is one tiny item per child. Each child will be participating, so please help your child prepare two or three sentences to share with the class and then pack the item on Monday night. “Telling” is easier when your child has an item to show his/her classmates.
Friday afternoon is the final time, the students in kindergarten through second grade will be going skating at Simmons Arena on North River Road. Helmets are mandatory for everyone under 18 years of age. Drivers and supervisors are needed. We will be leaving the school at 1:15pm. All students must be picked up at Simmons Arena by 2:30pm. If your child needs a drive back to school, please email me as soon as you know, as seats are limited in my car.
