Thank you so much for your flexibility and understanding last week. I am so happy to be back with the children!
How-to-Writing – This week and next week, we will be working as a class to complete a writing assignment on how to make a smoothie. On Friday of next week, I would like to make smoothies with the class. While I don’t have anything official, if your child is allergic to a particular type of fruit or has issues with yogurt, please let me know. That will help me know what ingredients I need to buy.
Handwriting – Last week, we finished all of the lowercase letters in handwriting. Starting this week, we will be focusing on the uppercase letters. Since we have learned all of the lowercase letters, we are now focusing on when to use uppercase letters properly. I will be working with the children on using capital letters only in the proper places. It is a big transition for the children, but I will help them.
Book Orders – Book orders for March are being sent home today. The due date is March 21.
Church and Sunday School Attendance – Please take one last look at the church and Sunday School attendance sheets in the home folder. I will have new ones in the folder by the end of the week.
No School March 13 – There will be no school on Monday, March 13, but ESC will be available. This is a teacher workday.
Field Trips – Permission slips for the field trip to the Children’s Museum are in the yellow envelopes today. Please turn in the money with the permission slip. It helps with bookkeeping. There is no limit to the number of adults that can attend this field trip. If you are attending, please let me know as soon as you can so that I can get the correct numbers to the museum.
|Loved2Love – This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. 1 John 4:10-11|
