Week 19 ~ Jan. 22 - Jan. 26, 2018

There was an incorrect date on last week’s newsletter.  The correct date for Donuts with Dads is February 13.  Fathers, uncles, granddads, or any father figures are welcome to join your kindergartener in the cafeteria at 7:45a.m. on the morning of the 13th. We will be having a Valentine’s Day card exchange on Tuesday, February 14 in our classroom.  Be looking for a list of student names coming home in the red folder this week!  Also – due to all the snow recently, we will continue this week with the Power Words all  look  will.  Make sure you review he  she  there and was who.
