Weekly Update

Weekly News


Mrs. Ericson and Mr. Ledwein


If you have not signed up for conferences, please do so.  Information for signing up was sent with your child and message was also sent from Infinite Campus.  If you need help, please let us know.

Wax Museum information was sent home with your child.  Most of the research will be done at school.  Be creative with the 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.

A yearbook form is in your child’s Friday Folder.  Yearbooks can be ordered online until February 23rd.  The online process is quick and easy!

Jump Rope for Heart information in also in your child’s Friday Folder.  It runs from February 13th – 27th.  All donation envelopes should be returned by Tuesday, February 27th.  The money raised goes to the American Heart Society.  This is optional for all students.
