Mark Your Calendars:

Read Across America
: We will celebrate Read Across America the week of March 2nd through March 6th.  During this week we will have different dress days linked to Dr. Seuss books as well as guest readers throughout the week.  We had a visit from Cat in the Hat earlier in February, where we had a school wide assembly.  Staff members had opportunities to read to the entire school.  It was a great amount of fun for all.  Please remember to encourage your child(ren) to read every day.

Spirit Days - March 2nd /Monday - Wear Stripes - Cat and the Hat Comes Back

March 3rd /Tuesday - Wear Pajamas - Dr. Seuss' Sleep Book

March 4th /Wednesday - Wear Green - Green Eggs and Ham

March 5th /Thursday - Wear Silly Glasses- Cat and the Hat

March 6th /Friday - Wear Silly Socks - Fox in Sox

Report Cards will be issued to students on March 30th.  Please take this opportunity to review your child’s progress with them.  If you have any questions, please contact your child’s classroom teacher.
