Good Evening Parents,

I hope everyone is well. We have the  cold  bug going around the classroom and it’s trying to land on everyone including me. I am somewhat under the weather but will be in this Monday afternoon. Let’s keep hands clean and use sanitizer when possible.

This week 3 of our students were entered in the 2nd Annual Spelling Bee.   Emily, Sofia, and Emery represented our class. They studied word lists and performed their best. Congratulations!

This week we have the Jump for Heart Event on Friday @ 10:00. We are jumping to raise funds for the American Heart Association.  I hope you can donate as little or as much as you can. Also,  everyone is encouraged to wear red. Please come and cheer us on. For students to be able to jump they will need  to fill out the permission slip. It was sent out last week.


2/1 Wed- Bring library books to take quiz

2/2 Thurs- Library Day-return books

2/3- Jump for Heart Event @ 10:00 (Wear red)

2/7- Spring Pictures

Good Evening,

I hope everyone had a restful Martin Luther King Day Holiday. I am glad to be back after learning and acquiring more knowledge and skills about Dual Immersion. It was great to see some colleagues, gain more tools to implement in the classroom and learn about the current research with being bilingual and bi-literate.

Please remember to send in the permission slip  as soon as possible for our upcoming field trip Monday, Jan. 23 to Living Coast(Nature Center).

I will   be out  Thursday and Friday  attending a Dual Immersion Conference  at SDSU. Therefore, I will not give homework until Friday, Jan 13. Also, students will enjoy the VAPA teachers on Wednesday morning.   In addition, we have our field trip on January 23 rd to the Nature Center. I will need 4 chaperones.Please let me know on the permission slip if you are interested in chaperoning.
