Week 22: Welcome February!

In a blink of an eye, January is behind us.  February is busy month for holidays and month long celebrations.

Some important dates to note:

  • Feb 1:  Milo turns 1…we’ll celebrate with his visit on February 7.   More about this later in the week.
  • Feb 2:  Ground Hog’s Day and 100th Birthday for Grand Central Station
  • Feb 3:  Superintendent Nick Ceglarek’s 40th birthday (Doesn’t he look too young to be 40?)  If you want to give him a shout out, his email is:   I know he would love to hear from his favorite audience…children!
  • Feb 12:  Lincoln’s Birthday
  • Feb 14: Valentine’s Day
  • Feb 18:  President’s Day

Month Long Celebrations

Most notable:  Black History Month:  The HISTORY Channel is my favorite go to learn about about and celebrate black history.

And…February is also the month to celebrate international friendship, pet ownership, potatoes, cherries, wild birds and embroidery.  It’s also the shortest month…and before we know it, we will be looking ahead to March.  So make the most of it!

A snap shot of our week is below.  We have a four day week…followed by a four day week!

Week 23: February 20-24, 2012

I hope your winter (slash that) mini-SPRING break was fantastic!  Teachers were very busy on Thursday working on assessments and report cards.  I am hopeful that everyone was able to use the extra day or two for rest and fun–which is well deserved all around.

I must admit, as far as the weather is concerned, I have crossed over from mourning the lack of snow to hoping we can push this weather through March and straight into spring.

This is our last full week of February — welcoming March in next week. The schedule below is a snapshot view.  Be sure to check out your child’s class blog for additional details.

Last Week of February

The week ahead looks calm—and a perfect way to close out this month.   I love that the days are getting longer and we are creeping ever so slowly toward spring.

Remember that Parent/Teacher Conferences are next week, March 1-3.  Also, we will not have school on March 4 and 5 due to a combination of professional development for teachers and winter break.

Here’s to a great week ahead!

The Week Ahead: February 8, 2010

The big highlight of this week will be Valentine’s Day celebrations in our classrooms, from ECSE to grade 5.  For vALdetails regarding Valentine party times, check your child’s class blog.

A reminder to all:  MONDAY, FEBRUARY 15 = NO SCHOOL. This is a teacher’s record day — time to work our second period report cards.  This is also a day that we prepare for Parent/Teacher conferences (March 2, 3 and 4).
