Friday, February 22nd is our student teacher, Ms. Cobb’s last day. She has done a great job and the students have really bonded with her. It also happens to be Second Grade’s annual Chinese New Year parade. We have decided to join in on a little of their fun, so we are going to order some Chinese noodles of our own for a light snack that afternoon. We have read some Chinese New Year stories and will have completed a couple of activities by then (this goes along with our holidays and traditions SOL).
Reminder: No School on Monday: President’s Day!
The SCA will be selling Valentine grams for $1.00 through Thursday. Support the SCA and send one to friends, teachers, or administrators. They will be delivered by Thursday afternoon.
The third nine weeks is well underway and the students are in need to replenish their school supplies! Check with your child and see if they need the following items: crayons, glue sticks, large eraser, and even another scissors! Let’s not forget PENCILS! THEY NEED PENCILS DAILY! Also check to see if new folders are needed. When all children have their own school supplies and there is no “borrowing” the day goes much smoother!! J Thanks!!
