This is just a reminder to set your clocks forward an hour this weekend.
Happy Birthday to Dr. Seuss! Dr. Seuss' birthday is March 2nd. We will be learning about Dr. Seuss in class this month. For more Seussical fun, you can visit Seussville.com.
Here is a link to the website from University of Minnesota. I will also make it a permanent link on the right so you can visit as often as you'd like.
This is just a reminder that the Student Reading Log was due today. I have to enter the minutes in order for the students to receive the tickets. So far I have only received three logs. I will be able to take them on Monday, but that is the latest I can take them.
Students may bring valentine cards to exchange at the end of the school day on Friday, Feb. 14. We will not be having a party. We will be celebrating the 100th day of school on Friday, Feb. 14 as well. 100th Day projects are due by Thursday, Feb. 13. Thank you for your cooperation!
Here are some sweaters and a scarf that have been left in the classroom. None of the kids wants to claim them. If you recognize them as yours, please let me know.

February 14th will be our 100th day of school. We will be doing various 100th day activities in class, and there will be a family project as well. I will be sending home details soon, but if you want to get a head start it will involve collecting 100 small objects and putting them on a poster for display. Please do not use food items, we don't want to invite any unwelcome critters into our room. Also, please be aware of the size and weight of your display. Remember, I have to hang them on the wall and I have to fit 24 of them, so not too large (it should be no larger than half a standard poster board) or too heavy (pennies usually make them too heavy to hang for example). You may help your child to group the objects by 10s, 5s, 2s, or even use them to make an interesting design. Be creative and work together, but most importantly, HAVE FUN! Please bring projects to school by Thursday, Feb 13. Thank you for your cooperation.
