Please keep those snacks coming.  We go through the snacks as fast as you send them.  Thank you so much for keeping us fed!!

This week is Black History Celebrations.  Kids will attend an assembly Wednesday and in the evening the school will be open for presentations and a gallery walk.  Please see the PTO enews for more information.  If you have not signed up to receive email and or robo calls please consider doing that right away.

Today the school had an emergency drill “lock down.” In room 112 we discussed how safety sometimes includes practicing so that in the event something happens we will not panic.  Students shared what they had heard about the events in Florida.  We acknowledged how sad and tragic and horrible it is that this happened.  We also talked about the fact that Ray is in a safe community.  If you have questions or concerns about our conversation do not hesitate to call me at the school to discuss it.

Wow, We put out a call for snacks and we received a bounty.  Please keep them coming.  We go through the snacks as fast as you send them.  Thank you so much for keeping us fed!!

Progress reports went home last Thursday.  You may not have been aware due to all the weather craziness.  Please check your child’s folder daily.

Wednesday the 14th we will invite students to bring a valentine (preferably home made) for each student in the class. Please do NOT send in any candy.  Candy sent to school will be returned to you.  If you need a new class list just let me know.

Thanks to all the parents who attended the Raise Your Glass Fund Raiser last week!

Room 112 is in desperate need of snack and magic marker donations.  Any and all will be welcome.

Just a reminder the school would prefer if we celebrate birthdays at the end of the month, however room 112 has already made so many exceptions to this rule I think it best to invite families when a birthday comes up.  Please try your best to make birthday treats somewhat healthy (strawberries and a sweet biscuit for example)  The frosting on store bought cupcakes is a strong source of sugar/lard.

Friday you can look for progress reports in the take home folders.  If you have any questions or comments feel free to email me at gsheridan@cps.edu.

Wednesday the 14th we will invite students to bring a valentine (preferably home made) for each student in the class. Please do NOT send in any candy.  Candy sent to school will be returned to you.  If you need a new class list just let me know.
