What a crazy week – snow and sub-zero temperatures, and now rain and nearly 60! Hope you all are staying warm and dry this weekend.
Next week we kick off our 2-week Penguin Project! If your child has a penguin book they’d like to share at circle time, they are encouraged to bring it in. Both fiction and non-fiction are welcome. We still need shoe boxes for the final piece of our Penguin Project.
There will be no school on Monday, January 15th, in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday. Enjoy the long weekend.
I will leave the Scholastic Book Order open until Sunday. If you would like to order, please go online to https://www.scholastic.com. Use our classroom code KP44F. Remember, every book you purchase for your child earns free books and supplies for our classroom.
Our Virtuoso schedule next week:
Tuesday: Science with Mr. Wyzga and Spanish with Senora
Wednesday: Music with Ms. Emily
Thursday: P.E. with Mrs. Wood ( don’t forget your sneakers!)
Friday: Library with Mrs. Silva (don’t forget your Library book!)
Do you know a child who would benefit from an RHS education? Please send them along to our Admissions Open House: http://www.rockyhill.org/admission-open-house/
Mark your calendars! Our January family event is coming up! On January 31st from 5:30-7:00 p.m. we will gather for our annual dinner/pizza & PJ party. Grown-ups will enjoy a potluck dinner in the Campbell Conference Room, while our kiddos have fun in their PJs eating pizza and watching a movie with Upper School friends in the preschool. Watch for more info!
2 Clue Bags went home today! In order for all students to have lots of turns, please fill them and return them as quickly as possible.

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and are ready to get back to school! We are excited to welcome Luna Caldwell and Owen Newkirk to our class starting on Wednesday!
In the coming month we will be looking at all things cold and learning about penguins! We need shoeboxes please, one per child.
Wednesday is PAJAMA DAY! We’d love it if everyone could wear their new PJs to school. Miss Amanda and I will be wearing our PJs too!
Clue Bags start this week! Our Clue Bags are your child’s opportunity to have a “show-n-tell”. When it is your child’s turn, please help them put an object into the bag and write 3 clues to help their classmates try and figure out what’s in the bag. Clue Bags go home on a rotating schedule. Please send them back promptly so everybody gets lots of turns.
Baby, it’s cold outside! It’s time for full winter gear; snow pants, boots, hats, mittens (not gloves) and a warm coat. Even if it’s not snowy, we need these things each day to combat the wind and keep us warm and toasty.
Make sure your child has a warm change of clothes, just in case. Nobody wants to wear shorts home when the weather is this cold.
All students are encouraged to keep slippers in their cubbies and wear them while inside. This helps cut down on the salt on the floor.
Our Virtuoso Schedule this week:
Wednesday: Music with Miss Emily
Thursday: PE with Mrs. Wood – everybody needs sneakers!
Friday – Library with Mrs. Silva
