I NEED YOU TO SEND IN A TRAVEL PICTURE / FAMILY VACATION PICTURE OF YOUR CHILD.
We are doing an activity with these pictures for ONE SCHOOL ONE BOOK. It is okay if it is just a picture printed on paper but please have it as a COLOR picture.
Please note that the kids will be returning the picture home when ONE SCHOOL ONE BOOK is completed so no pictures will be lost in this activity.
PICTURES NEED TO BE IN TO MISS. PICKETT ON MONDAY, JANUARY 31st or TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 1st.
The "One School One Book" selection was revealed today.
Your child is coming home with a great book. Which means that you will have a whole lot of valuable, fun and interactive reading time with your child each night.
This year, only one book per family is coming home.
Please use the reading time with this book as quality family time and engage all the members of your family in this great and exciting reading journey!

Thank you to those who made our bake sale a huge success by sending in a baked goodie for the kids to buy with their remaining scholar dollars. All the goodies were amazing and the kids really enjoyed them. We will now be starting our next session of scholar dollar collecting and the final scholar dollar sale will take place in JUNE.
We will be swimming on Wednesday, Jan.26th. We need to leave the school at around 1:30 so that we can be in the pool by 2:00. We will swim until approximately 2:50 pm and then return to the school.
A huge thank you to my parent drivers for making this trip possible!

A letter describing the "AT HOME BOOK PROJECT" is coming home with your child today. They have until Monday, January 31st to complete this project.
It requires your child to read a CHAPTER BOOK, write a brief book summary and design a project that showcases an element of the book. There is a huge list of project possibilites included in the letter to help your child with ideas for a project that they would like to create for their book.
Each child will present their summary and book project to their classmates.
Please read the letter carefully and contact me if you have any questions.
If your child needs help picking a chapter book at "their independent reading level" please let me know and I will assist them in selecting a book.
All reading minutes may be recorded on your child's R.A.H chart!!
The kids always have a blast with these book projects and they are so proud of their project creations.
