Weekly Update 1/25-1/29

Hello, families!

Here are this week’s announcements

* Thank you for supporting your child in studying their week 1 sight words. When I graded last week’s test, I saw much improvement on their spelling of these words. On Wednesday, they will be tested on their week 2 sight words.

*Willow Creek is collecting snack food items for the St. Luke’s Children’s Hospital family kitchen. Our class collected over 360 snack items!  Thanks for your support! The food drive ends on Friday, January 29. If you would like to donate items, please see details from the flyer below.  You may have to click on the photo to see the list


*We will have a Valentine’s celebration on Friday, February 12th. Mr. C has asked us to have children pass out their Valentine cards on Tuesday, February 9. We will hold them for 72 hours, and children can take them home on Friday, February 12th. This will help us ensure that Valentines are COVID free. I will send home a class list of names next week. Children may bring pre-packaged treats to go along with the Valentines if you choose.

We have some new families, so I will post these items again
