5N- News + Apologies
Firstly, I am so incredibly sorry for the mistake I made with the author visit that happened today and not tomorrow as I said it would. Thank you so much to all of the parents that scrambled to get their children money this afternoon so they could still purchase Michael Wade's books. I lent cash to a few students and have asked them to please bring money tomorrow to pay me back.
Letters about the Read-a-Thon went home yesterday. Students have until March 5th to collect donations. All reading that happens in the month of February will be counted towards their total. We will keep track of their reading during the day at school starting tomorrow to add to their totals. Please have them keep track at home (with the tracking sheet coming home tomorrow) of the amount of time they read on their own, read to someone, or have someone read to them. This is a fundraiser for our school. Please see the message below for more details.

A reminder that our C.O.P. trip is this coming Monday, February 5th. Any students with an inhaler or epipen need to have it with them at all times on the trip in case of emergency. Students coming on the trip must arrive 7:30am on Monday morning. Students not coming on the trip will have a guest teacher for the day and can arrive at the regular time.
Next Wednesday, February 7th, we are having a school-wide winter walk. Please ensure your child is dressed appropriately for the weather on Wednesday so they can enjoy their time on the walk.
Thank you again for your understanding regarding my mistake with the date for the author visit!
