Hard to believe that we are at the end of January and this was our first full week of school since Christmas break. I am ready for the snow to melt so that we can spend some time outside and kill all those germs we keep spreading around. We have had a lot of sicknesses lately. Please be sure to keep your child home for 24 hours from the last time they had a temperature to be sure that they don't share their germs with anyone else. If your child has a cough have them cough into their elbow instead of into their hands.
This week we painted American flags to decorate our classroom for the official voting next week. We took a walk on Wednesday to find the flag in front of school, but when we got there it wasn't hanging up. Mr. Debrick and Mrs. Adams informed us that the flag is hung up by the 5th graders and that we could ask their teacher in the lunch room about it. When we asked her, she said she would make sure they didn't forget the rest of the week. So on Friday we took the trip again! We enjoyed seeing how the flag goes up and down the pole and getting a chance to try it out.
We also did a lot of painting for a Valentine project. Please check out Artsonia this coming week for our new artwork. Don't forget that you can order your child's artwork on keepsakes, this artwork would make great Valentine's Day cards for Grandparents.
Zion will be having an open house on February 13th. The open house is a great oppertunity for Zion to show new families what we have to offer. If you know of someone who is looking for a new school please make sure to invite with the fliers sent home last week.
Valentines Parties will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 8, Wednesday, Feb. 9, and Thursday, Feb. 10 from 9:30-10:30 AM. If you would like to come in and help us during the party, we would love to have some parent volunteers. Valentines cards will be passed out after the party.
