Happy New Year!

           It’s been so nice to be back with the children. I loved hearing about all their adventures over break and how much fun they had. We have a few things that will be coming up.

 Friday, January 26th -  1:00 dismissal

 Sunday, January 29th – Catholic Schools Week begins with 9:00 AM mass followed by open house until 12:00. Be sure to stop by our room to see all the fun things your child is doing.

Tuesday, January 30th – Student Appreciation Day – students may dress down and no homework

Wednesday, January 31st- Parent appreciation Day- Thanks for all that you do!! – No homework

Friday, February 2nd- Grandfriend’s Day

 Monday, February 5th – 100TH Day! We have been counting down to the 100th day of school. The children may come to school dressed up like they are 100 years old or they can wear 100 things.  We are looking forward to this special day!

 The students will be starting Raz kids. Your child’s login name, password, and information were sent home in your child's folder. This is a computer program that allows the students to listen to and read books on their own. You are able to log on to your child’s account and practice reading at home. More is explained in the Raz kids parent letter. This program will help encourage good reading.


I look forward to seeing all of you at open house!

If you have any questions please let me know.
