  • Our 100 days of school is quickly approaching! This day is always a super fun day to celebrate what we've learned so far this year. Students are invited to bring in a zip lock back of 100 items to be put on display for the class. They are also invited to dress up like they are 100 years old or make a shirt that has 100 items on it (or a 100th day of school shirt). This is optional and there is no donation needed. Please be on the look out for more ways to help with this fun day!

  • Our Valentine's Day Celebration will be February 14th. We will be exchanging our Valentine's in the morning and then have a celebration in the afternoon. Please make sure your child's valentine's are in by the morning on Feb. 14th or they won't be able to pass them out with the class. If you need help getting Valentine's, please don't hesitate to ask. I'm happy to help! If you would like to come to celebrate with us in the afternoon, please sign up Valentine's Day Sign Up Link. I will send out a class list via email. 

  • We have weekends to sign up for the hamster! 

  • Please consider coming to the Royal Ball or helping out by volunteering or donating. I co-chair this event with Mrs. Cleary and it is truly an amazing night. Plus, all of the money raised goes back to the Kindergarten and First/Second Grade Teams for our End of the Year Party!
