We have a field trip this week to see a play, The Selfish Giant.  Several parents have already contacted us to chaperon.  Please let us know right away if you are interested because space is very limited.

Our traditional African American Heritage event is quickly approaching.  Students in the second grade are researching famous African American people and should be ready to present to the class.  Additionally the work you will see on display at the Gallery Walk will include some Andy Whorhal inspired images of President Obama (Room 215) and A visual of Langston Hughues My People Poem (room 214.)

Please send a water bottle with sport lid as the rooms are very dry in the winter months.

Please contribute snacks (no nuts)   we also need klorox wipes to help disinfect our classrooms.

Please note that there are several Dollar Tree stores going out of business around town and this is a great time to help to stock our Warrior store.
