Thank you for all the parents who signed up to volunteer. We will begin parent games on February 24th. I will send home a detailed letter with the assigned days for each volunteer next week.
We will be celebrating Valentine’s Day on Friday the 13th. The children are encouraged to bring a valentine for each of their classmates (27). We are asking that the students only write who the valentine is from. Please do not write who the valentine is to. We understand the many valentines come with candy, however we strongly encourage the ones that come with stickers or tattoos over candy. Please email your teacher if you would like to volunteer to help with our Valentine’s Day math centers starting at 2:30. We look forward to celebrating Valentine’s Day next Friday.
Parent Teacher coffee is next Wednesday from 9-10. Stop by to see what we have planned for the year!
100’s Day is February 18th….next Wednesday!! The kids are really excited about the 100th day of
school. The day will be packed full of fun 100’s day projects. We need your help!
**Every student needs to count out 100 snack items and bring them in a big Ziplock bag on
the 100th day of school. Here are a few ideas for 100 snacks: chocolate chips, goldfish,
gummy bears, cheese balls, cheese its, cheerios, fruit loops, gummy worms, etc. Please do
not include 100 pieces of wrapped candy. We will make a witches brew out of all the snack
items and share them with everyone. PLEASE make sure your child’s hands are CLEAN
when counting out the 100 food items.
**Decorate a 100’s day shirt with your child. Draw, paint, puff paint, stamp, or glue 100
items onto a white shirt and they will wear it to school on 100’s day. Trust us, students
will LOVE this shirt and never want to take it off! Here are a few ideas: googly eyes,
beads, ribbons, stickers, paint, stars, etc.
**We need volunteers from 9:30-11:15. We will be doing some great centers and we need
your help. If you can volunteer please sign the form below and send it back to school with
your child. Each class needs at least 4 volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering contact your teacher.
