March 2nd

Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!

I enjoyed having the chance to talk with all of you at conferences this week!  Thank you for coming in to talk about your child and his or her learning and development.  Can you believe that there are only 12 weeks left in the school year?!

Since we already about what we are studying in the upcoming weeks during conferences, I will make this update short and highlight a few special things.

March is Reading Month – a gold colored packet went home a few days ago detailing all the activities for the month.  There are a couple of contests and a calendar of reading activities to do at home.  Each Friday we will be Dropping Everything And Reading for a few minutes as a whole school.  Today’s theme was “read at the beach” There will be a Read-A Thon again this year.  Look for information to come home regarding this event.

Field Trips – We have a few!  More detailed information will come home closer to each date.  I just wanted you to be aware. Check out these important dates:

April 24 – Link Up Concert.  Look for information about this trip coming from Mrs. Ireland soon.  There a few opportunities to chaperone for this trip

April 27 – “Dolphins” movie  Thanks to generous donations from Holmes families and friends, we will be taking the 4th grade classes to see this Earth Day movie at the Cinema Carousel. (We will not be taking chaperons to this event).

May 31 – Chicago – You received your final payment information at conferences

June 1 – Bocce Ball and Rocket Launch Day – Look for information to come home about this fun day to come from Mr. Robinson and Mr. Overway.  I know they always need parent help for this day!
