Next Week/Reminders:

Next week we will be learning about the letter I with ice, ice skating, and ice cream.  On Thursday January 21st we will be making an ice cream sundae.  If your child can not eat the items listed on the calendar, please let me know.

Parent teacher conferences are Friday January 22nd.  Please arrive promptly as conferences are only 15 minutes.  I am looking forward meeting with each of you!

We still try to go outside if the weather allows.  Please make sure your child comes with a warm coat, gloves/mittens, and a hat.

I encourage everyone to send in a water bottle.  We do not have a water fountain available because of COVID.

Have a great weekend!
