There will be no NWEA Skill practice due to Valentine's Day as well as the 100th Day of School on Friday!
Valentine's Day Reminder:
Your child may bring in Valentines to pass out with only their name on it. There are 31 students in our class, please do not individually address them to other students, as this makes it much harder to hand out :)

*If you are not satisfied with your child's grade on a class assignment you may redo it for half credit!

The second two weeks of February room 101 will be learning about how a group of people who traveled to America by boat and the differences between then and now. On February 28th and March 1st room 101 will turn into the Mayflower for the students to learn first hand what it was like! If you have great skills with staple guns, 2x4's, duct tape and are free after the First Grade Potluck, please email Ms. Elsen! If you are not free but have Duct Tape or a Staple Gun you would like to contribute that would be wonderful as well!
