Dear Parents,

After dealing with some health issues (not covid related), I am hoping to be back at school this week with our sweet Grade 1 class. Thank you for your prayers as doctors continue to try to help and find answers. I appreciate your understanding with parent teacher conferences being cancelled. Please send me an email if you would like to setup an alternate time we could meet after school or talk over the phone if you would like an interview.

This week we look forward to celebrating Valentine’s Day as a class. I sent an email out last week with a class list if your child would like to make Valentine’s cards for their classmates. Students are welcome to bring treats to share. We’ll be learning a bit about what it means to be a good friend.

*Spelling Tests: As sent out previously, students will have their spelling list #12 test tomorrow.  They will be sent home with list #13 tomorrow and that test will be on Friday, Feb. 18. Thank you for your help as we try to catch up a little from online learning.
