Hello 110 Families,

 

We had a good week back after our long break! It took a few days but I think we are back into the swing of things!

 

We had indoor recess last week because of the cold weather but I’m hoping that we will get outside this week.  Please make sure that your child has warm clothes to wear outside.  They should have hats, mittens, scarves and warm jackets.  Snow pants add extra warmth and are good for when we get some more snow.  Boots are recommended as well. Let me know if you are having a hard time getting these items for your child.

 

We have option classes tomorrow.  All students were able to pick a class that seemed interesting to them and they will be going to that class for 2 hours tomorrow.  The classes explore many different things including weaving, theater, crafts, and literature. Ask your child tomorrow what class they went to and what they learned.

 

 

Have a great week,

Rachel Herder
