**** The kids have picked apart our awesome library chair to the point that it will no longer support their weight. The underside has also become damaged from use. Are you handy? Can you help me try to save our comfortable chair? Please let me know if you can, we love this chair being a part of our environment! Thank you! ****
I am writing this newsletter a bit earlier due to the fact that I will not be at school on Tuesday, the 17th. I am taking a personal day but I am looking forward to meeting with you for our Parent Teacher Conferences on the 18th and 19th. If you have not confirmed your date and time with me yet, please get in touch with me as soon as possible.
We have started a new game in class; Mrs.Homan against the class! Due to difficult behaviors arising lately and a lack of work, we are challenging each other to see who can earn the most points possible each school day. Here's the catch: Mrs.Homan does not want to win this game! Please ask your child to explain how our game works. Here's a talking tip: ask them what or who the "Mystery Person" is.
This coming week is kind of a weird one! There is no school Monday, Mrs.Homan is gone Tuesday, half-days on Wednesday and Thursday, and no school on Friday. On Tuesday and Wednesday students will be expected to wrap up any writing projects they have not completed and focus on their Africa research project. On Thursday we will be opening our Market. Please make sure that your child (2nd and 3rd grade only) comes to school prepared with all of their items they have been approved to sell. The kids should also bring any school money or checks that they have saved in case they are interested in purchasing products.
We have a lot of field trips coming up in the near future. On Thursday, February 26th we will be going to West High via bus to see, Happy Birthday Anchorage! On Friday, February 27th we will be walking downtown to the Public Lands building and watching the dog races for the start of the Fur Rondezvous. Are you able to chaperone? We are in need of one more chaperone for our Feb.27th field trip and at least 3 more chaperones for Happy Birthday Anchorage!
Thank you and as always, please contact me with any questions or concerns!
