February 29th -March 4th

Hello Parents,

Tomorrow (Monday, February 29th) we will be skating at Simmons arena. The children will need skates and a helmet ( a bicycle helmet is fine if you have one). If you do not wish your child come skating with us, please pick up your child at noon.  All students must be on the ice at all times with proper equipment.   We will be taking the bus to the rink again this week,  however, you are welcome to join us at the rink  at 1:15.  Your help to put on skates and tie laces is always needed and appreciated.  It went very quickly last week with so many helpers! Students will go back to the school for 3:00 and can be picked up at the school at the usually time.

This week’s Bible verse:

Psalm 145:18-19

The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth. He fulfills the desire of those who fear him; he also hears their cry and saves them.

This week’s tests: 

Wednesday — Phonics test

Thursday — Math test

Friday — Spelling test (List # 17 grade one, List # 20 Grade two)
