MWF Yellow Family February 11-22
Yellow Family Newsletter
Hello Yellow Family, this month we start our days outside, and the weather may be cold and wet. Please check extra clothes and wear a jacket with a hood. If you have rain boots please wear them as well. The puddle jumping will be fabulous!
This month we will celebrate Valentines day on February 13th. The children will exchange valentines with each other at school. You can use homemade or store bought but please do not include any candy. Have your child write their name on each valentine. This is a great opportunity for you to see how your child is doing writing their name. They do not need to write the recipients name on it, we will be dropping one in each child’s bag in front of their cubby upon arrival that day. We will also celebrate the occasion by making a Friendship Pizza to share for snack. Please bring in a bag for toppings. Fun, Fun, Fun!
All school chapel is Wednesday February 13 at 9am in the Church. Join your child for a quick 10minute service about LOVE. Then drop off your child for school on the playground. Can’t wait to see you there!
February 18th is a holiday, no school, we are closed for Presidents Day.
Please have Daddy mark his calendar for a very special lunch date here at school with your child. The Sweetheart Lunch is March 1st. at 12:00. This is a special tribute to the Daddy’s and they share a sack lunch together in the Parish Hall to celebrate Fathers. Your child will be working on a very special gift to give to Dad and take home as well as a special card.
Parent teacher conferences are set for Friday February 22. The school is closed this day. Your assigned time is on the sign in table. If your time does not work, please try to switch with a friend then let me know about the change. Each conference is a 20-minute time slot. Questions or concerns, please contact me.
