Hello Parents,

I hope you are enjoying the long weekend with your family. We had a great time celebrating Valentines Day on Friday.  Thank you to those who brought in cards and treats.  This week is our annual Love of Reading Week! There are number of special theme days and activities to look forward to.

Love of Reading Week

Mrs. Biech has prepared a week of activities for us to enjoy! Love of Reading Week is back once again, and here are the daily activities that your child is welcome and encouraged to participate in:

Terrific Titles Tuesday – Bring a favourite book to school
Wild Wednesday – Bring a “wild” friend to read with today
Theatrical Thursday – Dress up as a book character
Fantastic Friday – Dress in your favourite colour and bring in your colouring sheet for a prize.

Winter Storms and Dressing for the Weather

Last week’s storm left us with quite a bit of snow to play in (and there is surely more on the way)! Please make sure that your child has the proper winter clothing to wear outside. A warm winter jacket, snow pants, a pair of winter boots, a hat, and mittens or gloves are all necessary for safe play in the winter months.

Assessments This Week

Wednesday: Math Test
Thursday: Phonic Test
Friday: Spelling Test # 16  (This week’s spelling test will also have three vocabulary words along with the regular list words)

Dates to Remember

Tuesday, Feb. 16th – Friday, Feb. 19th: Love of Reading Week
Friday, Feb. 26th: PD Day (NO SCHOOL)

Enjoy your Week!

Mrs. Barton
