Spanish class monthly highlight:

During the month of March the students will continue learning about fruits and numbers to 100.

* Your child needs a warm coat, hat (or a hood), and gloves/mittens to go outside for recess.  If snow enters the equation, your child will need

    - waterproof jacket

    - waterproof snow pants

    - snow boots (and regular school shoes for indoors)

    - waterproof gloves

    - hat

    - an extra pair of socks 

* Please help your child remember to bring his/her water bottle to school each day!

* Please label all parts of your child's uniform with his/her name - it makes identifying misplaced items much easier!

* P.E. days are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.  Please be sure they have clothes for class outdoors.
