Encouraging notes are coming home today from a KES parent.  This parent wrote notes for the entire student body.  Wow!  So amazing!  Thank you to this anonymous person for helping make students feel special.


Library books came home Friday.  Please send it back each Monday with your child so they are able to look at it during school hours and have it for Buddy Readers.


I uploaded pictures from our visit with a hedgehog.  We had a hedgehog in our book last week, The Mitten.  We learned that the author, Jan Brett, has a pet hedgehog and puts one in every book she writes.  The kids loved it.  I also put pictures from our science experiment on Friday.  We made a snowstorm!  Great fun!!


You may purchase a new daily folder for your child if you would like.  They start falling apart this time of year.  I only ask that it be durable and have two pockets.  NO PRONGS PLEASE.  It can have cartoon characters, etc. on the front.  I will write your child’s name on it.

We could use some small toys for our Blue Buck Store.  Fast food restaurant toys are perfect or small things from the Dollar Store. 

Remember, fever free and/or vomit free for 24 hours before returning to school. 


If you ever have a question or comment, please feel free to write a note on the back of the calendar or send me an email.  I can respond fairly quickly to email.  It is difficult for me to get time to call. 


Thank you,

Mrs. Igou
