Happy New Year!

 
I hope you all had a wonderful winter break!  Here are a few upcoming news items:
 
- There is no school tomorrow, Friday 1-16, or Monday 1-19.  I will be working on 2nd quarter report cards on Friday.  They should be going home the last week of January.
 
- We will be going on a field trip to the Minneapolis Institute on Wednesday, January 28 from 11-1pm. Please email me if you would like to chaperone.  The district has changed their policy this year in that all chaperones need to fill out paperwork for a background check to go on the field trip.  The cost for the background check is $5.  There is some money available from Parent Council for background checks.
 
- We have other field trips coming up in March to the MN Center for Book Arts and the Como Planetarium.
 
- Thanks to everyone who has donated snacks!  We can always use donations of healthy snacks for hungry 3rd graders.  
 
- I am also looking for donations of pencils.  We have a community supply of pencils in Room 205.
 
- Conferences are coming up on the evening of February 12th and during the day on February 13th.  I will be sending out a sign up sheet in the next couple of weeks.
 
Thanks for everything that you do and for sending your children to school each day ready to learn!  Let me know if you have any questions.
