Our practice Lock-Down drill went very well.  The students were attentive and followed the procedures without any problems.  The police department emphasized the importance of every adult in the building needing to have a name badge on. Thank you to the volunteers who help in our classroom and for making sure you stop in the office to pick up your name badge.
Remember we will have our Valentines party on Thursday, February 14th.  The students can bring Valentines to their classmates Monday-Wednesday of this week.  We have 23 students in the AM class and 18 students in the PM class.  To avoid confusion, please do not have your child put individual classmates names on the Valentines, just have them sign their own name on the back of the Valentine or on the envelope. It simplifies the “passing out” process so much!
I encourage you to help your child participate in the “Kite Flight for Reading & Sight” program.  (A light pink calendar was sent home last week with further information—if you need another one, please let me know).  Our students can earn money for our school depending on how many students participate. Last year, the students earned $660 just from reading!  It is a win-win situation!  Prizes and money can be earned and more importantly, a life-long reading habit is being established!
