Dr. Seuss Week
Next week (02/27- 03/04) we are celebrating Dr. Seuss and celebrating reading in general. We encourage you and your family to participate in our Dr. Seuss themed days. Please see the schedule below:
Monday, February 27th - Cat in the Hat (wear your favorite hat)

Thursday, March 2nd - My Many Colored Days (wear as many colors as you can)
Friday, March 3rd - Fox in Socks (wear mismatched socks)
Homework has officially started. Your student will bring home his/her homework bag and a book each night. The book will stay in their folders for 2 nights. Reading a book that they are familiar with oris easier for them builds confidence and fluency.
Don't forget to order books from Scholastic books. The class code is L9V66 and the link is,
We do not have a water fountain in our new rooms so if possible send a water bottle with you child. Make sure that it has a pop-up top. This reduces the amount of spills.
