Happy Tuesday!  I hope you enjoyed your 4 day weekend. I feel like we haven’t attended a full week of school since before Christmas break. We are working hard and trying to catch up from all the days missed. 

 

Congrats to Hope for getting on the “I can count to 100” board.  Congrats to Realynn for getting on the “I can tie my shoes” board.  I”m so proud of how hard all of the students are working to achieve their goals!

 

Remember to send Library books back each Monday.  Thank you!

 

Envelopes came home for yearbook sales last week.  These will be on sale until April. 

 

I uploaded pictures from our Valentine’s fun last week.  We did a great STEM activity with our 4th grade science buddies.  The students had to create a balance scale out of a cup and a popsicle stick and then balance candy conversation on it.  We graphed conversation hearts for math and had to talk about the most, the least, equal, etc.  We also did a sink or float as well as soaking conversation hearts in water, coke, and vinegar to see the results.  The Valentine boxes were awesome!  I hope you had fun with your child creating it.  We enjoyed cupcakes and juice boxes while we looked at our Valentine cards.
