Sports Day in K-1

K-1 News
February 15, 2018

Thank you for sending in the valentine treats for our classroom parties and supporting Crisis Nursery with the money you sent in for Mardi Gras tickets. Our students raised over $750! K-1 had a wonderful time playing the games that our junior high buddies put together. We certainly enjoyed our day of celebrating!

As we begin this special Lenten season and prepare our hearts for Jesus, please encourage your child to follow through with their own Lenten promises he/she choose to make. Next week, we will begin participating in the Stations of the Cross each week until Easter.

Please check your hot lunch calendar closely. During Lent, there are extra lunches that you may have paid for, so it is NOT necessary to pack your child a lunch if so. HOWEVER, ALWAYS PACK YOUR CHILD A SNACK EACH DAY!!

Students will soon be working on memorizing their phone numbers and home addresses. We would appreciate you working on this with your child as well. Please complete the attached information that was stapled with your newsletter today and return it to school ASAP.

Blessings,
Mrs. Calcagno and Mrs. Dodd

Other Reminders:
*As cooler temperatures have arrived, please make sure your child is sent to school with a winter coat, mittens, and a hat every day. We always go outside for recess unless the wind chill is below 20 degrees or the weather is inclement.

*We asked at the beginning of the year for a spare change of clothes to be kept in our rooms. Some of the articles that were sent are now unable to be worn because we are now in colder weather. Please send in a winter change of clothing and we will send home your summer clothes. The extra set of clothing does not have to be dress code. We have accidents and spills daily in K-1, so that extra change of clothes is a necessity!
