News Week 25

   February 20 -25

I hope you are enjoying a relaxing three-day weekend with your families.


We've been having a lot of fun learning all about our presidents! This week, we will read and write about Abraham Lincoln as we study his life. 


Next week (February 27-March 3) we are celebrating Read Across America Week and celebrating Dr. Seuss's birthday! As part of our Read Across America celebration, we are welcoming guest readers into our classroom throughout the week! If you or someone you know (grandma, grandpa, neighbor, friend, doctor, librarian, etc!) would like to come and read your favorite story to our kindergarten class, be on the look out for a sign up on ParentSquare - coming soon! We are welcoming one guest reader every day!


We will also be celebrating Dr. Seuss next week (February 27-March 3) by dressing up! It's going to be a fun-filled week with a silly something to wear each day! Start planning your silly outfits now!
