TGIF (Thursday Generates lt's Fairies)
My weekly message for 3/19/21
Dear Team Stellar, (yes, you're getting this on Thursday; We'll be busy getting our second vax shots tomorrow as our professional development!)
Reminder: NO SCHOOL TOMORROW!!
We had another week for the history books! We are still working hard on getting to our new normal. The kids are thriving while being back in the classrooms and having multiple opportunities to see their friends outdoors! I have heard/seen zero tears - a new record!!! It was the week for wearing green and finding leprechauns! I hope your wishes were granted under the rainbow's pot of gold. "Top of the mornin' to ya: and the rest of the day for yourself!"
From the Student Council: We have some events coming up!!
1. FUN FRIDAY THEME: Friday, Mar. 26 - COVID Wear - all business on the top; all comfy on the bottom! A friendly competition amongst Slingerland classes.
2. WALK-A-THON: Friday, April 16 from 12:45 - 2:00. Information to be sent home next week. Medals will be awarded for most $$ raised and most laps completed. At the far back parking lot. We need to borrow some orange cones. If you have some that you could lend us, please let me know! Thanks in advance!
Family Letter Writing Project: Today your kid's came home with a stamped envelope, 2 pages of writing paper and 1 sheet of blank paper. Per the email I sent out yesterday, the thought was to get back in touch with someone you haven't seen in a year, due to the pandemic. It is my hope that you can, to quote a commercial from the 80's, "reach out and touch someone." (I think it was a phone company jingle...?) If your student is currently learning from home, you should receive their project in the mail this weekend. (AV will get his on Monday...) The letter writing project was designed as a fun, family activity. Enjoy!!!

bird songs - I hope this works for you. It provided me with at least 15 minutes of "Hmmm, what would happen if....?" kind of fun.
