I hope you all enjoyed your snowy weekend! The weather outside today was GORGEOUS at recess time! I'd like to think that it's going to begin slowly warming up, but who knows what MN weather has in store for us! Please continue sending all snow gear to school. In addition, please send an extra pair of socks in your child's backpack, as socks can get WET when boots get wet during this sloppy time of year! Your child will thank you! It's no fun to have wet socks!
Students will continue needing higher socks and a helmet (optional) until further notice for gym class on Mondays and Thursdays. I told the kiddos their helmets can stay here if they don't need them for skating on the weekends. If you want your child to bring his/her helmet home over weekends, please let me know!
You may have already received notice of this, but Mrs. Doyle made the announcement today that, starting this Friday, students can wear their choice of bottoms and a spirit wear shirt IF they bring an item for the food shelf! I think this is so wonderful--food shelves are often BOOMING around the holiday season but then see a drop in donations after the holidays are over. This is a great way for the school to continue giving back! Again, they can wear a spirit wear shirt on Fridays if they bring a non-perishable food item!
We have a pretty calm week this week--nothing too crazy going on! Next week I'll be doing quite a bit of assessing so I have accurate data for you all at conferences. The following week is conferences, then we have one more week, and then it's Spring Break! Time will fly! Please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions.
