PLC Day:
Our teachers had a great day of learning during our PLC on Friday. Teachers worked in groups to learn more about running records and how they drive instruction in reading to make it more personalized for each student. 

Cold Weather:
We are now in the midst of winter weather. Students go outside as long as the temps are 22 degrees or higher (we do factor wind chill into this number). Please ensure that your student is dressed for the weather - snow boots, coat, gloves, no bare legs. In the event of an emergency, we may be outside for extended periods of time and they need to be dressed appropriately in order to be safe. Thank you for your support.  

Parking Lot:
As the weather turns, our parking lot tends to get very crowded. Thank you for continuing to utilize the appropriate procedures for exiting the lots, as well as your patience while we are getting everyone home safely. 

Staff Appreciation Lunch and Snacks for Teachers:
Thank you to all of the parents who supported the staff appreciation lunch in December and the healthy snacks for staff in January. We appreciate your support and loved the goodies! 

Upcoming Events:
February 8 - SAC Meeting 4-5pm in the Learning Commons
February 15 - PTO Meeting 6-7pm (Child Care is Provided)
February 16 - Chick Fil-A Night for Iron Horse
