Dear Parents,

During the month of February we are paying special attention to those who are using kind words and acting out in kindness as well.

Due to the short week there will not be a Bible Verse this week nor will there be a Spelling Pre-test. For a detailed list of this week’s tests and quizzes please refer to the schedule listed below.

The Jog-A-Thon is this Wednesday. Please help your child collect sponsors and bring in the collection sheet on Wednesday, February 14. Students may wear modest and appropriate running apparel and Valentine colors that day. Otherwise uniforms must be worn. We need parent volunteers to count scores and help with setup/teardown. Please email me if you are able to help count. The third grade class is scheduled to run at 11:10 am inside the gym.

Our Valentine’s Party for the third grade students will be held from 2:00 PM to  3:00 PM on Wednesday, February 14th! We ask that you please send your child with a Valentine's for each student in the class. We currently have 18 students. I will send home a class list this week so that you will have each child’s name.

This will not replace lunch. Please send your child to school with a full lunch that day.

Our second field trip this school year will be to the Sacramento Zoo on Thursday, March 1st. During this field trip, we will tour the zoo and then meet a zookeeper in the auditorium for a presentation. The cost is $8.25. Funds are due this Thursday, February 14th. An information sheet regarding the field trip was sent home in your child’s folder last week.

Students will receive directions for their Animal Research Report this week. This project will be due on Monday, March 12th.  Students will have time to work on their Research project in class throughout the month. We will take time to visit the library to check out books on their animal, as well as, visit the computer lab to conduct research. Any unfinished work must be completed at home. Parents please remember that this is your child’s project therefore it should be their work. You are welcome to offer them guidance and advice, but please do not complete the project for them. Their project will be displayed at Open House for all to see!

Open Enrollment has begun for 2018-19 School Year

If you haven’t done so already, please pick up a Re-Enrollment packet from the office. Re-enrollment fee is $200.00 until February 28th ($50 discount). If you have any questions or concerns, please call the school office.

Thank you for all that you do! If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact me!

God Bless,

Mrs. Clevenger
