March 2018

          In just a few short weeks spring will officially arrive, and with it, the glory of God’s creation as it begins to blossom.  If you’ve never taken the time to fully appreciate the signs of spring, I hope you do this year.  Each new leaf, robin, and bud is a gift that God has sent for us to enjoy, and to remind us that He makes all things new. 

I received so many lovely Valentines, and would like to thank each and every child for being an important part of our class.  You are loved and appreciated so much more than you know!

Thursday, March 8, and Friday, March 9, are snow make up days. We will now have school on March 8 and March 9. There will be no hot lunch on Thursday, March 8. Please be sure to send a lunch with your child.

Our next memory work for March will be Proverbs 28:1: The wicked flee when no one pursues, but the righteous are bold as a lion. This will be due on Friday, March 9.
          The next verse will be Revelation 5:12: Worthy is the Lamb who was slain to receive power and wealth and wisdom and honor and glory and blessing! This will be due on Friday, March 23.

Please remember to send in your child's Bible memory verse on the due dates so that we can place the new verse into the book. 

I will be out of the classroom the week of March 12-16. My husband has a business trip to Orlando. Ordinarily, when my husband has an out-of-town trip, he would go and my daughter and I would stay home. It just happens that this trip falls over my daughter's tenth birthday. Since it also happens to be in Orlando, Mrs. Cost and Mrs. Ingiosi have graciously allowed me the time off to go along so that we can make this trip into a family vacation to Disney as well. My substitute for the week will be Mrs. Susan Hancock. Mrs. Hancock is a wonderful substitute. She was a long-term substitute for my daughter's third grade class last year and was fantastic. She has also been a substitute in our class twice this year and has gotten to know your children very well. I know the class will be in great hands!
          During this week, should you need to contact Mrs. Hancock, please call the school or send a note with your child. I cannot promise that I will be able to check my email throughout the day to see dismissal changes so please do not send dismissal changes to me via email. If there are dismissal changes, please be sure to call the office so that they can let Mrs. Hancock know before dismissal time.

Thursday, March 22 is Favorite Sport Day. This is an all-school Spirit Day.

          The third quarter will end on Tuesday, March 27.  Report cards will be available Friday, April 6.

          Easter Break will be March 29-April 2. We will resume school on Tuesday, April 3. The last day before Easter Break, Wednesday, March 28, we will have a small Easter celebration. If you are interested in sending a treat, please let me know. We will need one salty snack, one sweet snack, juice boxes, plates, and napkins. Please remember, no red dyes in food or drink. Thanks! :)

As our year continues to progress, I must emphasize the importance of working with your child at home to reinforce what he or she is learning.  Good study habits begin at an early age.  Take some time each evening to practice spelling words, math flashcards, and the Bible memory verse.  Even just a few minutes for each area can make a huge difference.  Thank you for your continued faithfulness in supporting your child’s education.
