**come to school in your costume
Take some time to look at Ms. Jones' website for more information.... and to practice the songs!!
Parents I suggest coming early to get a good seat. Also the kids can bring an extra change of clothes on both days if they want to change after the performance. Costumes may not be left at school.
...Open House will be Friday March, 3. You can come anytime between 7:30 and 8:45 to see the great learning your child has been doing! Sleeping in a little is always encouraged!
...Our Kite Day will be on Wednesday March 8 from 12:35-1:25. I emailed you a flyer with all the information.
In language arts are continuing with our reading groups. We are also wrapping up poetry and will be diving deep into non-fiction text. We will be exploring and using text features (captions, pictures, glossaries, tables of contents, headings, subheadings, etc.) to aid in comprehension. We will also be finding the main idea and details of nonfiction text. Please make sure that you are reading with and checking what your child is bringing home to read.
In math this week we will be continuing the topic of measurement using rulers and yardsticks to measure objects. They will also learn about estimating. For continued practice at home you can work with your child on telling time to the minute and addition and subtraction with regrouping.
In science we are learning about the moon! This week we will be showing what we've learned through informational writing about the moon.
I think that is it for now and have a great week!
The school hours are 7:45-2:55. The first bell will ring at 7:40 and the tardy bell will ring at 7:45 which means school will begin promptly at 7:45. Please note that the doors into the building will not unlock until 7:15.
Entering the building in the morning will happen through 2 sets of doors. Students will enter the building through the front middle doors or the gym doors only. Students will go directly to the cafeteria and sit with their class for morning assembly. Morning assembly will start at 7:45. Students arriving to school after the tardy bell will need enter through the front office doors to receive a tardy slip.
Security and the safety of your children is our top priority. All parents attending only the morning assembly will enter the building through the gym or front middle doors. Parents will not be allowed to enter the halls or walk children to class after the morning assembly. Parents that need to remain in the building (for a conference, meeting, or to volunteer) must exit the building and sign in at the front office to obtain a visitor’s badge.
