    **Attention! Attention! Practice Folders Are Coming Home Today!** The children are bringing home their new Practice Folders today. These are the green folders you provided at the start of school. Everything you need to know about the Practice folder is written on a note inside the folder. Please be on the lookout for the Practice Folder. 

    This week in 95% Phonics we are focusing on the letters Uu, Qq, and Xx. Please click this link to read about more activities to do with your child. 95% Phonics Lesson 15

    Remember the 100th Day of School is Wednesday, January 31st.  The students can dress up on the 100th Day of School as if they were 100 years old. Ideas for the girls: hair in a bun, glasses, dress or sweater, pearls/bead necklace, wrinkles, etc. Ideas for the boys: suspenders, tie, cardigan sweater, glasses, wrinkles, etc. You can probably find most of these items around your house or in your dress-up box. I also thought I would share that they have 100th Day dress up items at Party City.  It will be a fun day! 

    Please keep working on the Valentine's Exchange Home Project. I sent our class list home last week. As your family works on writing valentine's, please have your child do the writing, not mom or dad. When your child has finished writing the names on the cards, please let your child practice reading the names. Your child will need to be able to read the name in order to drop the valentine in the correct bag. I sent this home early so the children have plenty of time to work on this project.

    Heads Up: Coming home in your child's blue Daily Folder is an order form to purchase a class group picture. Class group pictures will be taken on Wednesday, February 7th. Order forms will be due on or before this date.

    Reminder: Our Multicultural Night is scheduled for Friday, February 2nd in the Gym and Cafeteria starting at 6PM. Multicultural Night is a very special event at CES. There will be live performances from around the world.  This is a fun opportunity for your child to learn more about the various cultures around us.
