Donations are now being accepted for the American Heart Association :) Send donations in with your student and Mrs. Allen will collect them. The Jump-a-Thon will take place on Friday, February 10th during Specials time. The Prize Drawing will take place the following week :)
For those lucky Summer birthdays, we celebrate 1/2 birthdays in our classroom. That way everyone gets their own special day:) I will remind you of when your student's 1/2 birthday is and when we will be celebrating it. Feel free to send in treats if you would like, but do not feel obligated to.
Box Top Reward: McDonald's Party
This Friday, February 3rd we will be having our Box Top reward lunch of McDonald's given to us by the awesome PTO :) So, do not send a lunch in with your student on this day as we will have lunch provided to us! Keep sending in those box tops :)
I decided to make a change to how we keep track of AR scores. Instead of having a certain amount of points, I will go by the Amount of Books read/AR Tests passed. I will keep track of each AR test taken that your student passes (70% or above). They will need to pass a total of 5 tests during this Card Marking as their AR Goal. I will be explaining to students this week as well since it is a bit of a change. I think it will be a much simpler way to keep track so hopefully all goes well :)
Report Cards will be sent home on Friday. Please sign and return the envelope that it is sent home in the following week. I look forward to sharing with you the progress your student has made so far this year!
Happy Birthday to Ava on Monday!

Happy 1/2 Birthday to Lizzie on Thursday!
