Teacher's Corner (By Mr. Singer):
I hope everyone has been able to un-bury themselves from our enormous pile of snow last night. I was finally able to run my snow blower this season. In fact I was able to run it twice last night, thank you snow plow man and lake effect snow.
If you did not hear, because of the weather last night the after school programs were canceled, and I know that several of them will be made-up next Thursday. One of which is the Sports Mania that I run. If any students are in this program we will have yesterday’s session next Thursday. We start a whole new cycle on February 28th if you are interested. If you are interested in signing up for this program go to the recreation department website.
Thursday, February 21st will be an early release day where the students leave at 11:30. That same night is teacher requested conferences from 4-8. The request letters will go home next week. Friday, February 22nd is also a no school day for the students. Friday, March 1st is the end of our second trimester as well. 2nd trimester grades will then be posted the following week.
That is all for this week. Thanks for reading Our Class Newsletter. Please email me with any questions or concerns you might have.
