We survived the 5 day week!!! I was grateful for the warm temperatures and that the groundhog did not see his shadow. We had a week filled with all things sh, Abe Lincoln and skip counting. Next week, we are moving on to the th digraph, Valentine’s Day and numbers to 100.
Report cards will go home on Monday. I am so proud of how far these cuties have come since September. There has been so much growth socially and academically in the 91 days we have been at school. A huge thank you for all that you do each and every day.
Our Valentines exchange will be on Thursday, February 14th. If your child would like to exchange valentines, please have them make a card for everyone in the class and make a bag or box to hold the valentines they receive.
100th day is on February 21st. Notes about that day came home this week. Please let me know if you have any questions about the t-shirts.

Should I send my child to school? During flu season and other times, many parents question whether or not they should send their child to school after they have been out sick. Please review the following information in our KES Parent/Student Handbook about our procedures: Do not send your child to school if they have a fever over 100.4 degrees, vomiting or diarrhea due to illness. Children should be free from these symptoms for 24 hours before returning to school. Also, if a child is absent from school due to illness, they may not attend after school activities that may be going on at school that take place on that day. A child who has been prescribed antibiotics can usually return to school 24 hours after treatment has begun or as directed by the child’s physician.
