Welcome to the first full week of February!  This will be a very busy month with lots of special activities.  Thank you to all the volunteers who are assisting with our celebrations.  We are looking forward to the 100th day party, celebrating Chinese New and Valentine's Day.  The children completed a measuring investigation this week.  All students found items in our classroom that were shorter and longer than their feet and then recorded their findings. It was a wonderful  hands-on learning experience.      
A reminder that we will be sharing our 100 day projects on Thursday, February 7 as an introduction to our celebration on Friday.  Please see me if you have any questions.
I set home a note regarding Valentine's Day on Friday with the names of the students for valentine cards and important dates.  Please contact me if you did not receive this note.  It is on pink paper and inside your child's sound review book.
Thank you to everyone for your Scholastic Book Orders.  Just a reminder to please put your name on each form that you submit.  We have to separate all the forms and cheques for ordering and payment, and sometimes have extra books left over without any way of identifying their owner.  
We have 2 short weeks in February and a reminder that book bags will be going home on Monday and Thursday, the week of February 11, and Tuesday and Friday, the week of February 19.  Thanks so much to all the parents who have done book bags this year.  I could not do this program without you.
Thanks also for returning the theatre trip permission forms.  I have forwarded the names of the volunteers and the Grade Parents will be drawing 4 lucky names.
