Weekly Update 2/8-2/12

 Hello, families!

Our Valentine’s Day party is February 12.  As I mentioned last week, I need you to bring your child’s Valentine cards in by tomorrow, February 9. Mr. C has asked us to have kids pass out Valentine cards on Tuesday, then hold them for 72 to ensure that they are COVID-free. Any cards not received by Tuesday morning will not be passed out in time for Valentine’s Day. 

*Inside your child’s OWL folder are the new Math fluency sprints we will be working on over the next month or so. These are not required homework, but I do encourage kids to practice their Math fluency sheets at home. Have them keep the fluency sheet inside the sheet protector, and use a dry erase marker on the protector to practice. That way they can practice the sheet multiple times. 

*Don’t forgetyour child must be able to read AND spell the sight words each week.

*There is no school on Monday, February 15th in observance of Presidents’ Day.
