I hope you are staying warm and enjoying your extended, extended time off! Obviously it was a super short week, so there's not much to report, but it was great to see the kids on Wednesday! We had some fun catching up on details about their break. The fourth graders spent some time working on their biography speeches, I worked the fifth graders to the bone on adding unlike fractions, and the third and fifth graders did some nice persuasive writing. There was no joke this week, (expect for this cold) but I'll be back with a doozy next week! Because of the weather, hang on to homework folders until Thursday--I'll send new homework on Friday. (If you turn it in early, no big deal--I'll just hold it till Friday).
The cold day Thursday allowed Megan and I to get together and do a lot of work planning for April--Autism Awareness Month. We are SUPER excited to share all of the amazing plans we have with you. Stay tuned for events, volunteer opportunities and awesome swag! I can't wait!
Oh, and if you're available, come out on Friday (Feb. 27) to 59 West for the annual Lakewood Silent Auction, put on by the PTA. It's one of my favorite events of the year and with everyone's support, it makes a lot of money for our school! Hope to see you there!
