Circle Letter 02/5/16

February 5, 2016
Dear Families,
       How did it get to be time to talk about Valentine’s Day already?   Time goes by quickly…! We would love to have a Valentine’s Day Card Exchange and Party on Thursday February 11th.   Decorative cards and small sweet treats are welcomed and encouraged.  Please find the enclosed list of class names to help when making the cards. (on the backside of the assignment sheet…) In addition, we will also have a batch of homemade cupcakes (thanks to Ollie’s mom!) but perhaps a big bowl of orange slices and red plates would make for a great party.  Please contact me directly if interested.  And as always, thank you!
       We have had a busy week planning and preparing for our Spirit Week… thanks to Ginnifer and Lizzie’s persuasive writing! Yup… they talked Mr. Foster into it. We also will be starting weekly Reading Buddies with a first grade class, thanks to Lilly’s persuasive writing! Well-done girls!!  Be sure to get the scoop from your kiddo… And we have now officially moved on to our new unit of writing “Information Writing” Stay tuned… 
       Our read aloud book has us laughing aloud.  The BFG (ask your child what that stands for J) has a very funny vocabulary and a rather peculiar way with words. 
       Lastly, please note there is no school on Friday 2/13.  This will be our last family letter until after our February break.  I wish you a great week off from school, red folders and homework.  But please consider playing a few multiplication fact math games along the way.  Every bit helps.   Enjoy time with your family…!                                       

                                    Warm Regards,
