What's Happening in 1H

FRIDAY NEWSLETTER

 

FROM THE DESK OF MRS. HOLZINGER

 

 

On Monday we will began practicing for our cultural residency program. The kids are doing a great job learning the Virginia Reel dance. I sent home index cards for anyone with a speaking part (names were picked out of a hat to be fair and children were given the opportunity to “pass” if they didn’t want a part) – please practice the lines at home so that they are memorized by the show date.

I would like to host a small “opening ceremonies” party in my class and I am looking for volunteers to help by sending in small treats. I would like to spend the day talking about various countries, reading stories from various countries and sampling treats from various countries. Please see the attached flyer for more information about helping for this day (if you are interested).

We continue with our “Olympic events” in the classroom. Many medals have already been given out. Be sure to ask your child all about it.

Only 13 more days until the Winter Olympics!
