Class 103 Update

Hello Parents of Class 103, 

I hope everything is going well for each of you and your families.  I spoke with Ms. Z yesterday and I wanted to pass on some updates for the class.  

1) Class Art Project - Friday, Feb. 4th
Next Friday, Feb. 4th the class gets to have a fun art/painting project for their class reward in earning 25 pom-poms!  As it will involve paint and all the students, Ms. Z was hoping we could have between 4-6 parent volunteers that could come in and help out.  

Please email me back by Monday (the 31st) so that I can let Ms. Z know who will be in, and that we have enough volunteers.  Thanks!  

2)  Friday Mystery Reader 
Starting on Friday, February 11th - Ms. Z is setting up a Mystery Reader program, where parents or invited family members can come into the class and read a special book to the class.  You can wear a mask, or have some other kind of disguise to add to the fun of being the Mystery Reader! 

Important information: 
* Start time: 11:45am (to read for about 10-15 minutes) 
* Choose a book that is a favorite of your child, family or that might relate to a theme that the class is studying, or an upcoming holiday. 
{ex. the class is currently studying Fairy Tales or Valentine's Day for February dates}
* Please be sure the book is age appropriate and not to long to read in about 10 minutes 
* Email me back a date that would work for you or someone in your family to come and read with the class, and we will put together a list of dates for February and March, and then work on dates for April and May closer to that time frame.   
* If the Friday time absolutely does not work for you, please let me know and depending on parent needs I can talk with Ms. Z and see what other arrangements might be made.  I can't promise anything - but we can try to work to get everyone to come in by the end of the year.     

Upcoming Dates are: 
Friday, Feb. 11th 
Friday, Feb. 18th 
*Friday, Feb. 25th off - Mid-Winter Break*
Friday, March 4th 
Friday, March 11th 
Friday, March 18th 
Friday, March 25th 

3) Class Donations! 
If each family can remember to send in $5 for February to cover the cost of extra material supplies and party supplies that would be much appreciated. 

And for any of you that have baby wipes that you can send in ASAP.  If you have a spare package, and could send that in, it counts towards your February donation - please just let me know so that we don't purchase more than necessary as a class for her. 

If you have any questions, please let me know and I'll do my best to help in whatever possible. 

Enjoy the playing in the snow and drinking hot chocolate with your child(ren)!

Summer Lord
