Happy Valentine’s Day!! Thanks for all the yummy treats and goodies. You all made my day 🙂

I sent home some math homework. It is due on Tuesday. I’m also looking at the stack of book bags that we forgot to pass out because we had such a fun and busy day. We will pass them out on Tuesday. Sorry!

I hope everyone has a good mid winter break. See you on Tuesday!

PTA news

During the last week of February, the PTA will be collecting Box Tops!  Send in your box tops in a sealed Ziploc bag with your child’s grade on it.  The class with the largest donation will earn a pizza lunch party!

To prepare for March Reading Month, we will be hosting a Book Swap on March 1st!  During the last week of February, students will be asked to send in gently used books to donate to the swap.  PTA members will set up a one-day-only library in Room 104, and on Friday March 1st, each class will be invited to come to the swap and fill a bag with “new” used books to bring home!  Any books left over will be donated to the school library, or a charity of choice.


  • Even with the day off yesterday , we are still having our spelling test tomorrow. Please make sure your child studies tonight.

Thanks to everyone that brought in their 100th day snack. If you haven’t brought it in yet please bring it in on Monday. The 100th day is Tuesday. Please wear your 100th day shirts to school on Tuesday.

Have a great weekend!

Good evening,

I hope everyone was safe today. Book bags are due tomorrow and spelling tests are still Friday. 100th day snacks are due Friday too. Yesterday I sent home a homework project for Black History month. Please read it over carefully. Let me know if you have any questions. Projects are due February 25th. See you tomorrow 🙂


All students in our class have finished their winter NWEA testing. The district did extend the testing window due to all the days off. So we are waiting on getting all the district data in. I hope to send individual NWEA reports home on Friday.

Good afternoon,

This week February 4th – 8th:

  • This Wednesday is a late start day. School starts at 9:35am.
  • There is a PTA meeting after school this Thursday in the cafeteria.
  • Next Monday the 11th is the 100th day of school. 100th day snack is due this Friday. Don’t forget to complete your 100th day shirts and wear them to school on the 100th day!
  • If the temperature including windchill is below 20 degrees we will do drop off and dismissal right inside the front main doors. That way no one is waiting outside in the cold.
  • Many students have spelling homework for getting words wrong on their test today. It is expected that students practice and study their spelling words each night at home so they can be successful when they take their test each week. We practice them everyday in class but for some students that isn’t enough. In the beginning of the school year I sent home a spelling word activity sheet with many different fun ways to practice spelling words each week. It is expected, especially if your child struggles in spelling, to be done at home most days. There is a copy on the blog if you click the homework tab at the top. Please help your child to be a better speller and help them practice their words at home everyday.
  • Next Thursday is a half day and Valentine’s Day. We will be decorating bags, passing out valentines, and doing some other activities as well. If you’d like your child to pass out valentines, please bring in 24, enough for each student in the class. Do not list names on the valentines, just have your child sign their name so the students know who it came from. You are allowed to include candy or other trinkets with the valentines as well.
  • Heads up, our next field trip will be with the kindergarten to the Ann Arbor hands on museum on Tuesday, March 12th. This particular trip is funded by the school and we will be taking a bus. However, we will need some chaperones. More info coming very soon.

Have a great week!!
