Busy February…

Hello K Families!                                                                                 February 6, 2017


Thanks to all of you for making our all school ski day a great day for the kids. If you took any pictures can you please forward them to me? This week at school we will continue to learn about the solar system but we will also be preparing for the upcoming Big Event by hearing about the different scenes that will comprise the Ocean theme, and preparing for tryouts on Thursday after noon. If your child would like to sing a song, play an instrument, tell a joke, or perform some special talent either by themselves or with a friend they need to sign up with me by Wednesday. Thursday after lunch we will have an all school meeting where kids will show us their stuff. Kindergarteners are usually very excited to see the bigger kids audition but they usually can’t last the entire afternoon. I am looking for a parent helper from 1:15-2:45 to help monitor those kindergarteners who don’t want to watch the entire try-outs. Please let me know if you are available/willing to come in on Thursday to help. On the topic of performance the kindergarteners will be doing a bilingual play about manners with Diana at this Friday’s all school meeting if you would like to come and watch.


Next week is a busy week with Valentine’s Day and our fieldtrip to Aspen Mountain. On Tuesday we will celebrate Valentines Day by exchanging cards and having a special snack. If your child would like to pass out Valentine’s please be sure they have one for everyone in the class. If you would like to help plan something special for Valentine’s Day please let me know. I try and keep it low key. Next Wednesday we will be taking another all day adventure with ACES up Aspen Mountain. Kids will need snow pants, coats, boots, hats, gloves, and bag lunches on that day. Please let me know if you would like to join for this fun trip.


The following week will also be busy with our 100th day of school pajama party, portfolio night, and our El tToga. If you have any ideas about a menu please let me know. I will definitely be looking for some help in the next few weeks getting portfolios ready and planning El tToga, so let me know if you are available to help.


Thanks for all your continued support.
