Happy Ground Hogs Day! I hear he saw his shadow so we have six more weeks of winter.
As always, please make sure that your children are coming to school dressed for the wintery weather.
Last week we altered our schedule, and classes began cross country skiing outside for one hour. We have one more week so be sure students have enough gear to keep them warm outside for an hour. Students are required to participate in all school activities, including PE and recess, so please have students dress accordingly.
Third quarter parent-teacher conferences will be held Wednesday and Thursday, February 21st and 22nd. Please sign up for conferences. The scheduler opens on February 5th(directions included in this newsletter). This is a wonderful opportunity to share student strengths, needs and year–end goals. Please make sure you sign up early–the slots fill up fast. We are shooting for a 100% attendance rate for parent attendance. If you are unable to sign up on line, please call the office and we can help sign you up for a time.
