Many families havedealt with illness over the last month or so, and we are deep into the cold andflu season, so please be supportive as we ask children to cover coughs andsneezes with their elbows and as we continue to work on proper hand-washing. Wehave to do our parts to stay healthy!! Also, we will try to get outside everysingle day unless the temperature is below 40 degrees. Please be sure yourchild wears a coat with his or her name labeled inside. We cannot beresponsible for lost coats. Take a look at the newsletter for this month to seewhat is going on at school.

    Weekly Homework:

    We are still working on Thinking Maps. It will take us a while to finish our study of shapes, so feel free to work ahead and send them in. Please take a look at the chart to see what we are learning each week, and send in pictures, drawings, small objects, or magazine clippings that show the shape we are learning each week. Don’t just look for plain shapes; look for THINGS that are the shape. See below for ideas:

    Family Project:

    The family project for January will be to create a snowman. These need to be three-dimensional, meaning that they can stand up on their own. Make them from ANY materials. Have fun and be creative! These are due on or before January 14.

    Safety is Important!!!

    We love our students, and we want to keep them safe! It is so important that we have current, working phone numbers for parents and emergency contacts. We MUST be able to reach you in case your child needs you! If any of your phone numbers or other contact information has changed, please update this information.
