Dear Parents,

A few things for you to remember this weekend.

  • Our school and school offices will be closed this week for mid-winter recess. We will re-open on Monday, February 25, 2019.
  • Remember to start shopping for items for our basket for the school fundraiser in March. A letter went home on Friday. Please check it out. You may start sending in your donations on Monday, when we return to school.
  • There was no Lending Library this week. Our next book return date should be Tuesday, March 5, 2019. Since PKA 1 & 2 will be closed for a Professional Day, books will be due on the Monday, March 4, 2019 instead.
  • As you know, our new theme is Light and we did an experiment on Wednesday. We made a lava lamp. If you want to try it at home you will need these items:

A clear container, water ( about 3/4 cup), vegetable oil, food coloring (we used red), and 1 Alka Seltzer tablet (we broke it up in small pieces before putting it in. Before you add the food coloring, wait for the oil and water to separate. Cool. To make it continue, just keep adding Alka Seltzer tablets. The students enjoyed working with that.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend, and the week off. See you on Monday the 25th.

Ms. Jeanette
