March 18, 2019Dear Parents, Hello and welcome back from a beautiful, but cool, weekend! There were some mighty fine basketball games this weekend! *BOOK IN A BAG Please remember to sign the sheet indicating you have read with or know your child has read the book. Thanks! ***We will be making Bunny Easter bags (a craft similar to an Easter basket) for an upcoming project. We will make these at school. Id like to be able to put some items inside the bags they are kind of like an Easter basket. So, if anyone is at the store and remembers this, a donation of any kind would be appreciated (erasers, pencils, bubbles, candy ) Please send the items to school by Tuesday, April 16th. Thanks! Please continue to send in the items for the Dragonfly Foundation. All items are accepted through Lent. Consider having your child write a paragraph (essay) for the Knights of Columbus Scholarship. It is for $500.00 payable toward their tuition. Call Mrs. Florea if interested or send me an email and I will be sure to get the proper papers to you. Heres a look at this week: There is NO SPELLING list/test this week. Instead we will review and play a few vocabulary games. Tuesday, March 19: In support of the service project, Hands Against Hunger, children may come out of uniform for a $1.00 or more donation. Wednesday, March 20: Spring Begins!? Spring Picture Day Children may come out of uniform. All get pictures taken, as the school gets a stipend for each child getting pictures taken. Friday, March 22: NO SCHOOL Enjoy!
