1st Annual Father Daughter Dance a Success

On Tuesday, February 10th, Nansemond Parkway Elementary hosted its first “Father/Daughter Valentine’s Dance”. Over 100 dads and father figures attended with NPES students dressed to impress. The purpose of the dance was not just to give parents and students the opportunity to have a great time but to also promote the school’s Watch D.O.G.S. program, Dads of Great Students, to bring more male volunteers into the school. Mr. Garrick Rhoads, NPES Asst. Principal, spearheaded this social event along with Mr. Kevin Blount, Watch D.O.G.S. Chairperson and NPES parent. Many staff members volunteered to help make this event a success as well. Dads and their little girls danced the night away and also had the opportunity to take professional pictures as keepsakes. Valentine’s Day gift baskets were raffled off to raise funds towards building shelves for the school’s P.E. teacher to store equipment. More activities will also be planned in the future to help strengthen the Watch D.O.G.S. program to bring more male presence into the school.

Weekly Updates for the Week of March 2

Good Evening!

I hope everyone is doing well and staying warm with this crazy weather.
I am also hoping we can make it through a WHOLE week of school!!!

Here is what this week has in store for our class:
Monday is Read Across America Day/ Dr. Seuss’ Birthday so we will read a lot of Dr. Seuss books and the majority of the activities will revolve around a Dr. Seuss book.

Friday is Oreo Cookie Day so I will be bringing in Oreo Cookies for the class for snack.

I will be sending home a March newsletter; I am just waiting on dates.

It looks like March 12th will be the make-up day for the 2nd nine weeks awards assembly at 11:35.

In reading we will continue working with digraphs and short vowels. Our spelling words will be the same as last week as we did not have an opportunity to test on them along with the sight words. Show n Tell will also be the same as last week since we did not have the chance to share (something that starts with one of the digraphs: sh, wh, th, ch). There will not be any word sorts this week for homework as we continue to get caught up.

Math: We will continue working on telling time, addition, and subtraction. We will hopefully get through a whole week of guided math groups. :)

Science: We will learn about magnets!

Not much new as we did not get to a lot of things last week.

Have a wonderful week!

Mrs. Williams
