Weekly Newsletter – February 13

Good Morning! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Just a note really quick, I am so proud of each and every one of your kids! They all did very well on their Speech Meet selections on Friday! Just wanted to let you know 🙂 Here are a few things to know for this week!


What We Are Learning:

English: This week we are learning about adverbs! We will also continue to practice labeling sentences.

Bible: Still talking about Joseph!

Reading: This week is a review week. We will be doing some comprehension questions and reviewing some of the things we have learned the last few weeks.

Math: We are working on graphing this week! Today we will be talking about bar graphs. We will also be talking about circle graphs, line graphs, and taking surveys.

Science: We will be finishing up our solar system unit on Tuesday and we will be taking a quiz on Wednesday. Students will need to know the order of the planets for the quiz. A blue paper went home last week with the correct order!

Spelling: We do have a spelling test this week, and it is on THURSDAY. The words are also review words so there is no spelling homework tonight.

This Week’s Verse: Psalm 23:1-2 – The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters.

Next Week’s Verse: Psalm 23:3 – he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake.

Odds and Ends:

Valentine’s Day Party: Our class party is tomorrow at 2:30 and you are welcome to join us! We will be passing our valentines prior to the party so please be sure to send them with your student tomorrow morning. We will also be making bags in class tomorrow to hold our valentines. Remember, there are 14 students in our class. Let me know if you have questions!

Skating Party: There is an all school skating party at Acres of Fun on Wednesday from 4:00-6:00. It is $5 a person or $15 a family. Cash or check will be collected at the door.

Midterms: These will be going home Thursday. Please be patient with me as I catch up on grades. With so many kids being sick, I am still trying to get everyone caught up.

No School: We do not have school this Friday (the 17th) or Monday (the 20th).

Auction: Save the Date! Our school auction will be held at Church of the Savior this year on February 25th (that’s in about 2 weeks!) Please mark your calendars and make plans to attend! If you are willing to help with the auction please contact the office.


I think that is it for this week! Have a great week and a happy Valentine’s Day!
