I can’t say for certain that spring is in the air but I do think that the spring break excitement is intensifying!!!! 4 ½ days left! Friday will be a ½ day and our dismissal process should begin around 11:05 am. We had a great week learning about story elements like setting and character traits, identifying and counting money and states of matter. Next week, we are reviewing short and long vowel sounds, open and closed syllables, sink/float and math rotations that will review various math concepts taught this year.
We will have our Festival of the Arts event on March 28th from 6-8 pm. We will be performing at 6:05 so please plan on arriving to school at 5:50. We practiced today and while I am a little biased I am happy to report that they sounded amazing!!!

Mark your calendar for a NEW SPIRIT NIGHT that KES has never done before: WEDNESDAY, APRIL 17th
Take a night off from cooking and enjoy Marco’s pizza and/or cheesy bread presented in a box decorated by YOUR child(ren.) Their artwork is guaranteed to be the hot topic of dinner conversation!
Dinner can be carry out (John Rolfe Parkway location) or delivery. Look for additional information with detailed instructions printed on yellow flyers that will be distributed in the orange communication folders on March 26th & April 9th.
I think that is all for now. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and I look forward to seeing the kids back on Monday.
