February 1, 2013 News

WOW!! We've had a very busy week! I feel like we are finally getting back into a routine again! :-)

Here are some VERY IMPORTANT reminders:

** Please remember to send $4.00 with your child to school by MONDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 2013 for the field trip to the TX A&M Commerce Planetarium. We must receive the $4.00 in order for your child to attend. Please turn it in by the due date.... we don't want any of our friends to be left behind! :-) They are so excited about going. It is going to be a fun learning experience!

** I sent home notes about the 100th Day Snack. Please send your item to school by Tuesday, February 5th. We are going to use the food to make a snack made up of 100 items. The children will count out the items to make their own snack! They will have fun while counting to 100!

** Tomorrow in your child's folder, you will find a pink heart with directions paper clipped to it. Please have your child decorate the heart  any way they choose and have them write on it one thing they LOVE about Kindergarten. We will display these in the hall for the 100th Day of School and Valentine's Day!! They will make a fantastic decoration for both occasions!

Thanks for all you do and thanks for helping us be successful in class and at home! I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!

February Snack Calendar

Check out the snack calendar for next month, which starts tomorrow (it is hard to believe January is already over). Please be sure to send snack for 22 students on your child's designated snack day. We have ran out of extras, so if snack is not sent each day, the students will not have one. We would love extra snacks to store for days that snacks are not sent to school. If you would like to send an extra set of snacks with your child that would be great!

Thanks so much!

Hello families! I need to relay a few changes from what your child's newsletter states.

1. Math and Science Night will be on January 31, 2013 at 6:15-7:00 PM. A brief PTO Meeting will be held before hand a 6:00 PM. Everyone is encouraged to attend so we hope to see you there!

2. I have received some wish list times. We no longer need the spaghetti noodles or marshmallows. We still need 3 packages of the double stuffed Oreos, 1 jar of creamy peanut butter, and 1 large bag of M&M's. Please let me know if you can send any of these items to school. Thank you to the parents that donated the other times! We are going to have so much fun using them!

VERY IMPORTANT!!!! Please remember to send your child's $4 for the planetarium. The school has to write a consolidated check for all students and teachers to go. They will send this check to the university on Monday, February 4th. In order for your child to attend, you must have their $4 turned in by February 4, 2013. We want everyone to enjoy the field trip, so please turn their admission fee in by the deadline.

Thanks for all you do! I hope everyone has a FUN- tastic weekend!! :)

Check out our newsletter for the week! Please check the snack days for next week. We have ran out of extra snacks, so it is important to send snack on your child's designated day.

Also, we are still trying to work out the details for our field trip to the Planetarium. Please know that I will send information home as soon as I have it. Tomorrow will be the last day of school for the week. Friday, January 18th is a student holiday and Monday, January 21st is a school holiday. School will resume as normal on Tuesday, January 22nd.

Dining With Dad

Thank you to all the dads (and mom) that were able to come eat with us last week! We really enjoyed visiting with each one of you! To all of the other dads, we're sorry we missed you. I know that everyone is busy with work/school so we understand that you were not able to make it. We hope you all liked the special pictures we made for you!

Lions Basketball Team Comes By For A Visit

Last week the boys Lions basketball team came to our school to talk with us about the importance reading. They read The Napping House to us and we got to ask them lots of questions. We learned from them the importance of getting a good education, listening to our parents, teachers, coaches and administrators, and they also talked about how reading can make us successful in school and in life. The children really enjoyed their visit. They are great people to look up to!

Hello Families! I am uploading this newsletter early because I will be in a training session tomorrow afternoon and I wanted to be sure that I remembered to give everyone the information for the week. For the same reason, I kept your child's folder today.  I am busy getting them ready to send home tomorrow! Please be sure to read the newsletter and pay close attention to the Dates to Remember. Also, Dining with Dad is tomorrow at 10:55 - 11:25 AM in the CES cafeteria. I received many responses and I'm very excited to see all the "Dads" tomorrow. We have something super special prepare for you!

I think that's all for now. I may have to post some additional information later! :) I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!

As a side note (I knew I would remember something else), be sure to look for some information coming home next week about our upcoming trip to the Texas A&M University Commerce Planetarium!!

Also, I will be sending next week's Smarty Pants Homework home tomorrow so that your child can work on it over the weekend. It will not be due until Thursday, January 17th.
