Next Week’s News! 3/25/18

Welcome back!

I hope you all had a wonderful vacation and are ready to get back to school. Spring is on it’s way (or so they say)! Keeping that in mind, the books we’ll be ready will include:

“Splish, Splash, Spring” by Jan Carr and Dorothy Donahue

“My Spring Robin” by Anne, Harlow and Lizzie Rockwell
“People in Spring”, “Weather in Spring”, “Plants in Spring” by Martha E.H. Rustad and John D. Krenz
Our Virtuoso schedule this week is:
Tuesday: Science with Mr. Wyzga and Spanish with Señora
Wednesday: Music with Ms. Emily
Scholastic Book Orders will go out this week. Book Orders will be due Friday, April 6,2018.
The weather is changing daily. What you have at drop off is not necessarily what will be the rest of the day. Please keep that in mind when dressing your child for the day. Coats and maybe even hats and mittens may still be needed some days.
Have you checked your child’s extra clothes lately? Now’s the time! Chances are if you packed that bag awhile ago, they’ve already outgrown them!
Have all the quilt squares been returned? I’d love to put the quilt together in the coming days!
Rocky Hill will be closed on Friday, March 30th in honor of Good Friday.
Don’t forget to check out our blog!
Enjoy the end of your vacation and I’ll see you Tuesday!

Next Week’s News!

Hi everybody!

I hope you had a wonderful weekend despite the awful weather. There are a few things to share in this last week before Spring Break.

Welcome to World Cultures Week! This week we will be learning all about The Philippines! Have anything to share? We’d love to have you!
Quilt squares have begun to arrive. Like all the other family projects, please brainstorm and make these together. You may use whatever you wish: fabric markers or paint, felt, ribbon, buttons, iron-on patches, fabric scraps. Be creative. I just ask that whatever you use is washable. When all the squares are returned, I will put them together into our 2017-2018 classroom quilt.
We will be closed for Spring Break March 12-26. We will return to school on Tuesday, March 27th. Are you traveling? Send us a postcard!
Please take all of your winter gear home by Friday. We are planning on NOT needing them when we return!
Don’t forget to check the blog:
You’ll find pictures, newsletters and calendars there!
Have a great night and we’ll see you in the morning!
