It’s starting to feel like spring and we got to go to the playground today!!!  We did come in a little early from recess, however, to wash our hands with soap and water!  Usually we use hand sanitizer but at least for a while we are going to use real soap and water.  We know that is the most effective against germs!!!

We also watched a video about hand washing today.  We are fortunate to have two sinks in our classroom, so we are sending the kiddos to the sink several times a day to wash hands.

We are singing a song about a leprechaun and talking about St. Patrick’s day.  We will read a book about St. Patrick as well.  Our letter is Oo and our number of the week is 10.

We are also working on our Lenten jar of beans for good listening and being good helpers.  At Easter time, the dried beans will become jelly beans!!!  The more we earn, the more we will get!!!

Our Bible verse for the month is, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and all your soul, and all your might.”  Deut. 6:5

Our Parent’s Organization (PRIDE) will meet on Tuesday evening at 6:30 p.m. in the 6th grade room. Please come if you can!

There is a Fish Fry every Friday during Lent from 5-7 pm.

Our school’s Annual Dinner Auction is Saturday, April 18.  Please make reservations soon!!  It is sure to be a fun filled evening!  More information can be found in the ROAR.
