The end of the third quarter is fast approaching. We cannot believe how fast this school year has flown by! We will be testing for 3rd quarter benchmarks and report cards March 19th-28th. Please try to avoid any unnecessary absences during this time. If you know that your child will be missing any days, please let us know ahead of time so we can plan accordingly. Thank you for your understanding.
Spring break will be here soon! There will be no school March 29th-April 3rd.
We have our field trip to the Utah Children's Theatre scheduled for April 18th. All kindergarten students will attend school that day from 8:15 to 11:15 A.M. There will be no P.M. session that day. If you have not sent in a $5 donation and you would still like to do so, we ask that you have the money turned in by Monday, March 19th. Thank you to those who have already done so.

On Thursday, February 15th, we will be having our Valentine’s class parties. This will also be the day that your child can pass out Valentine’s cards/treats if he/she so chooses. The A.M. class has 29 students and the P.M. class has 25 students. We would ask that you have your child only write his/her name in the “From:” section on each card. Please leave the “To:” section blank. This simplifies the distribution process greatly. If you have any questions please let us know.

We are now in our third quarter of kindergarten! Wow! Report Cards went home with your child Friday. Please ask him/her for it if you did not see one.
There was a blue paper sent home that explains Battle of the Books Jr. This is a reading incentive program that will hopefully get kids excited about reading. If your child is not yet reading, he/she can also get credit for the book if you read it to him/her.
Our field trip to Discovery Gateway will be this Wednesday, January 24th. All kindergarten students will attend school that day from 8:15 to 11:15. There will be no P.M. kindergarten session. It will be a fun and exciting day for your kiddos!
Also...looking ahead...there will be no kindergarten on Wednesday, February 14th. This will be a day when I will be conferencing with parents all day long. Thursday, February 15th will be a short day and will also be the day of our class Valentine's Day parties. I will let you know when the Online Scheduler is up and running for you to sign up for SEPs.
Let me know if you have any questions.
I am a 1st grade teacher at Cottonwood Elementary.
