Greetings room 111!
Happy March is Reading Month! Our theme this year is “Reading Rocks”! Last week we kicked off reading month with a Rockin’ Read Aloud/PJ Night in the gym! Thank you to our students from 111 that came we had so much fun 🙂 If you weren’t able to come don’t worry, we have more in store for you to participate in soon! I am currently teaming up with the fundraising committee to plan a “Rockin’ Movie Night” in the next few weeks! I’ll keep you posted as this develops and send home a flyer as soon as the fundraising committee finishes it! We were even lucky enough to have a “Mystery Reader” come and read to our class last Friday! If you’d like to be a Mystery Reader just return the form you receive this Monday in your child’s homework folder and we’ll get you scheduled to come in 🙂 Just remember you are a surprise mystery reader so shhhhhhhh don’t tell your child when you’re coming! Just go to the office and sign in on the day we schedule you and knock on our door. Your child will be thrilled it’s their parent! It’s going to be a great month in school, thank you in advance for all your participation and help to make it amazing!
*Be sure to check your March Activity calendar to help your child “dress accordingly” on the fun days we have sprinkled throughout the month and especially on Fridays!
PS. Friday you received a permission slip for a field trip we got extra money for last week from the office YAY! SO, we need to make sure we send in the forms ASAP! I am SO SORRY that we don’t have the funds to take chaperones on this trip 🙁 But promise we’ll take many on the next one please forgive me! We are planning to have a “picnic” lunch in the hallway and read with our friends for reading month when we get back on Thursday, so please send a packed lunch to school on Thursday because we will miss our lunch time! Anyone that wants to meet us on Thursday after the field trip to be a mystery reader we’d LOVE to have you back at the school!!!
