Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow which means we will have six more weeks of winter!  I hope they will be six mild weeks with more sunshine...or...a snow day!!!!!

Parents, please spend some time each day helping your children with their multiplication facts from 0 to 12.  Many children are progressing and doing quite well, but some need extra help at home.  Also, encourage your children to practice cursive each day.  Soon, we will be using it more often in school.  

On Tuesday, February 13, we will be going to Kleinhans Music Hall to hear the outstanding Buffalo Philharmonic perform.  What a wonderful opportunity this is for the children.  Thank you for signing and returning the permission slips and money.

The February book report project is due Thursday, February 15.  We read and discussed Mr. Popper's Penguins in class, and now the children are working on their written report, diorama, and key at home.  Written instructions, the book, and a key were sent home.  The dioramas will be on display outside the third grade classrooms.  They're going to be spectacular!

On Wednesday, February 14, we will celebrate Valentine's Day.  If your children would like to exchange valentines with their classmates, all they need to do is sign them and pass them out to everyone during our party.  Please feel free to share a candy or cookie treat.

Our winter recess will begin the week of February 19.  School resumes on Monday, February 26.  Enjoy your week off!

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!
