Dear Families, We hope everyone enjoyed their weekend. This week we will be having fun with Dr. Seuss. We’ll review rhyming skills and have guest readers from the community come read to us on Wednesday. Starting next week and for the rest of the month we will be completing our assessment (AEPS) for the 2nd time this year. We’ll use the results from the AEPS as the children’s end of the year progress report. ART TO REMEMBER: Orders, including payment and original artwork, should be brought to school by Wednesday, March 2nd. The magnet is not FREE. If you do not wish to purchase anything please return the packet with the magnet as soon as possible. Thank you!
