The Great Kindness Challenge!: January 24-28

To promote a culture of kindness, we are participating in The Great Kindness Challenge.

We are going to dress up each day with different themes to remind us of kindness.

  • January 26, Wednesday: “Crazy for Kindness” Crazy Hair and/or Crazy Socks Day

  • January 27, Thursday: “I Dream of Kindness” Pajama Day

  • January 28 Friday: “Cheetahs are Kind” School spirit day: dress in your Fantastic Friday shirt and school colors of black and yellow

This week we are continuing to focus on the concepts and academic vocabulary introduced last week.

Valentine’s Day!

We love to celebrate Valentine’s Day! Your child is welcome to bring valentines to school on Valentine’s day. For the sake of simplicity, we ask that you put only your child’s name on the “from” and refrain from filling in the “to.” We’ll have students distribute their valentine’s in their homebase room and then, if they would like, they can distribute them to the other homebase rooms as well.
