Wow! What a week it was! While it is exciting to move on to some fun new spring events, we are sad to say goodbye to our Country Spotlight Number Corner- having parents share about their family, history and culture was an invaluable addition to our classroom, thank you to the many families who participated! You can see highlights from last week below.
A big update: Please be sure to read incoming e-mails about the new morning procedures. Here are the highlights:
1. Students who are not getting breakfast, with their parents, or part of a morning club/activity (where they are with an adult), need to go OUTSIDE TO THE PLAYGROUND. This means students should come to school prepared for the weather and to be outside (wear boots to school if it is snowy/wet, a coat, hat and gloves in the winter).
2. Students will not be "released" from breakfast, morning clubs, etc. until the bell rings at 8:50.
3. We will pick up students outside on the playground at the end of the D Hall where students will learn to line up when the bell rings. We have attached the Duty Station roster with the instructions below if you want more details. Thanks for helping us make sure students are safe and supervised!
BOOP Homer Sea Week! Don't forget to make some plans in regards to this upcoming event. There is also a t-shirt design contest and t-shirt order forms, we have attached the form for you about both below :)
Great job presenting on baby Kate, Kate!
Wow! Thank you to Johnico for sharing about a family trip to Spain, to Junko for introducing us to the Japanese language, to Andrew for sharing about Bermuda and Paula about Colombia, where they were born and raised, and Kary for sharing about Ireland!
Happy birthday Kate!
We were lucky enough to have the 5/6 family group introduce themselves as immigrants from the early 1900s coming to America!
