REMINDER: No School tomorrow January 15 in observance of Martin Luther Kings Jr.'s Birthday.
This week we will continue our winter unit study, we will be looking at snow. Our focus letter this week is the letter J. This week on Thursday we will be starting a 6 week nutrition education program sponsored by Michigan State University Extension programs. The program will focus on the topics of Germs, Grains, Vegetables, Dairy, Protein, and Fruit. This program consists of a story, followed by a physical activity and if applicable a snack /food demo.
This week I am unfortunately again informing you of the loss of our afternoon TA Miss Vickie. Miss Vickie has decided that this position will not be working out for her and has decided to pursue other options. This will be Miss Vickie's last week with us. Please know that Miss Kelly and I will make this transition as easy as possible, and continue to provide continuity throughout your child's day. I will keep you updated when I have more information about a replacement. Thank you for you understanding of this situation and if you have any questions or concerns please contact Mrs. Geidner.
