Wow it is one windy day as I sit down and work on school planning! I hope this message finds you all well and grounded! We had SUCH a fantastic time at the Detroit Zoo on Friday and once again I’d like to thank all of the parents who came out to help chaperone and join us on the trip. The kids were engaged and so excited about animals and technology and it was a joy to be there. I have taken some pictures in my group and would love to share any pictures you have taken of your groups as well. Here is everything you need to know for this week so far. If there are any modifications or new info I’ll update you as soon as possible. Have a wonderful week!

March is Reading Month: Yippee! My favorite month is almost here! March is the month of the year that we celebrate the theme of reading and this year our theme is “Reading is So Sweet!” We will be sending home a calendar of fun events that your child may participate in this month with their peers at school. Students will enjoy assemblies, guest readers, spirit dress up days and rewards throughout the month. I am on the committee along with Ms. Kerby so please feel free to send me a note, call or email if you have any questions concerning the month’s activities and I’ll be sure to get back to you asap! I will be sending home a “Mystery Reader” sign up sheet tomorrow so if you would like to be a reader please respond as soon as possible and we will get you on our schedule! It’s a secret though when you’ll be coming so shh
*Book Fair: The Scholastic book fair run by the fabulous PTA will be from March 4th-March 8th in the library. They are even open until 4:30pm after school all week so families can either send in money for children to buy books or take them yourselves after school is over!
Homework: This week your child will receive two math games to put in their math binder as we have completed all the homework assignments in Module 3 and now just need to finish up the last week of lessons! We will soon be moving on to module 4.
*Popcorn: Popcorn Friday is on this week so bring those quarters!

*Reading Packs: Make sure your child is spending about 10-15 minutes reading at night on Raz-Kids and the books, letters/words you find in the reading packs. This will help your child SO much reviewing their personal bags each night! All bags have been switched so make sure you child is practicing books they receive this week.
