Dear Parents,

Welcome to February.  We will have fun getting ready for Valentines Day.  We do exchange Valentines with our friends.  Please do not put names of 'friends' on the envelopes, just have your child (or help them) sign their name.  The children pass out their Valentines and this makes it easier for all of us.  Please remember, no candy or food products, we would return it to you if it was accidentally brought in to school.

February 1st and 2nd are pajama days.  Your child can wear their favorite PJ's to school that day.  We will practice our manners when we share 'breakfast' together (dry cereal and orange juice) and enjoy hearing stories from all of our 3 year old teachers.

We also will spend time learning about dinosaurs.  We will become paleontologists and dig for bones, chop dinosaurs out of ice and make our own volcanoes.  This is a unit that we all enjoy!

There is no school on February 20th.  Happy winter break!

The last week of February (February 27th-March2nd) is conference week.  The children do not attend school.  There will be sign up sheets posted in the hall for you to sign up for a 15 minute conference with me to discuss your child.  More information will follow regarding this week.

Enjoy the month....I just know that spring is coming!! Stay warm and healthy and remember I can be reached at mrskurch@yahoo.com
