A big congratulations is in order for KINDERGARTEN's first EXPERT book publish....they look great and will be on display in the Library for a week or two. This week we begin our LONG road down YOUNG AUTHOR's. The entire school is working to create a story of their very own beginning with character development, brainstorming and setting and a problem for their story. We will be PAPER-making at the end of the month. *Think Eric Carle's style like in THE VERY HUNGRY CATERPILLAR. Stay tuned about VOLUNTEERing for this annual and fun event.  This project is HUGE and kids and teachers put a lot into it. You will be invited to the school-wide celebration in April.

Next Monday is Martin Luther King day and there is no school for kids. Therefore, we won't be skiing.
Please help your child remember classroom shoes everyday.
Tuesday is PE day and your child needs tennis shoes or gym shoes. Thanks.
