Weekly News


Mrs. Ericson and Mr. Ledwein


Conferences start next Thursday from 5:00 – 8:00 p.m. (school is in session).  If you are unable to attend your scheduled time, please let us know. Thank you!

All green Reading Olympic sheets are due on Thursday, March 1st.  Students who completed 4 events will win a bronze medal.  Students who completed 5 events will win a silver medal.  Gold medals are earned by completing 7 events.  Students will win prizes based on the medal earned.

Be creative with the Wax Museum costumes – you don’t need to send a lot of money (don’t purchase full costumes).  Thrift shops are a great place to look!  The clothing does not need to fit perfectly - borrow from family members, parents, and friends.  Props are welcome, but not necessary.  Please let us know if you have any questions.  The costumes are due at school on Tuesday, March 13th.

If your child participated in Jump Rope for Heart, please return the form and any money raised by Tuesday, February 27th.  Thank you!
