Hello Summer!

Dear Parents,
We did it!!!!!  Thank you for a wonderful 2020-21 school year!  This year has certainly been challenging in many ways, but it has also been so incredibly rewarding.
*Summer to-dos: The two areas that are very important to keep encouraging your child to practice over the summer are: fact fluency (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) and reading. Your child is still able to log into Clever and access any of the math games there,  or work on MobyMax fact fluency at home. Thank you for building these regular routines into your summer schedules — your child and their 4th grade teacher will thank you for it! 🙂
** Free Meals for Kids: Please read the following message from Mary Darnton, the HPS Food Services Director:

Food Service is gearing up for another summer of FREE meals for students in our community!  Summer Meal Distribution will begin on Wednesday, June 9

If you ARE interested in picking up meals for your children, help us plan by completing a VERY short survey HERE.   This is NOT a pre-order, you’re helping us plan!

Any child aged 18 or younger is eligible for meals (also special needs students aged 26 or under). Click HERE to see the menu!

Each Wednesday we will offer a 7-day Meal Pack for each child. Each pack will have 7 days of breakfasts, 7 days of lunches, and 1 gallon of milk.  Pickup time is 11:00am-12:30pm.  Parents can designate another person to pick up meals for their families.

Saddle UP For Reading!

March is Reading Month

We have SO much going on this month! March is taking us into the WILD WEST with the theme, “Saddle Up for Reading”. Here’s what I would like you to know for this week….

  1. Students will receive a month-long reading calendar on Monday, March 1. Students have a weekly reading challenge to read 20 minutes per day/100 minutes per week.

  2. If students meet their weekly reading goal, they will be entered in a raffle to win a book from the book fair. We will have one winner from each grade level weekly.

  3. Our parent club will be providing snacks each Wednesday. This week we will enjoy “On The Trail” mix. 

  4. On Friday we will wear a cowboy hat, bandana, or handkerchief. (I have extra handkerchiefs if you don’t)

*Also, remember this Friday we will have a half day and that is also the day we are having our Because Of Winn Dixie party. If you could help your child pack a peanut butter sandwich or an egg salad sandwich for a snack…. I will provide the rest! Thank you for ALL you do to make this a fun experience for your child. 

Valentine’s Day Preparations!

Thank you parents for signing up for the party donations! I’m so grateful for your generosity.  The party will be on Friday, February 19, 2021! (next Friday). Students voted to make their own boxes or bags to hold their Valentines.  If your child does not care to make a Valentine holder, he/she will be given a bag at school. When your child’s Valentine holder is completed he/she can bring it to school (Valentines too).

  We are working on a SPECIAL project. Would you please send a lightbulb? (the cheapest standard lightbulb you have, it can be a burned out light bulb) We will need these by Tuesday. We also need an egg carton if you have one.
  I wanted to give you an update on next week’s party. We will have a Polar Express Party on Friday, December 18, 2020! The party will be in our classroom. We will play games, decorate a sugar cookie and drink hot chocolate. 
  There are a few supplies that we need for the party. The following link will let you know what is still needed: Sign up Genius .
  For the party each student will need to bring:
1. 21 small items to share with classmates (these can be Dollar Store finds like pencils, stickers, play-doh, candy canes or other candy, etc.)
2. A gift bag that can sit on their desk and hold all of their goodies.
* Students will also wear pajamas to school 
Thank you in advance for your help in making this a fun event for our kids!
