    Dear Parents and Families:

    We’re excited to invite you to our upcoming Scholastic Book Fair. Hosted by our PTN, this event is an opportunity for students of all ages to build their home libraries and further their love of reading.

    As always, all purchases benefit our school. After missing out on many beloved traditions, our spring Book Fair will be a familiar, welcome, and safe event for our students.

    We’re excited to celebrate our love of books together at the Book Fair. We look forward to seeing your child there!

    There was a schedule change so on Thursday the 19th, an Icee truck will be coming to school to give our students complimentary treats. If you do not want your child to have one please let me know.

    Since allergy season is upon us, we could greatly use tissues for class.

    This week we investigate where sand is found. The children will be working in centers much of the day. During dramatic play, the children can use the tools and play with the dollhouse. In the block area, the children are encouraged to build different structures and replicate patterns with colored blocks. In art, the children can try to draw beach and desert scenes. Some of the children have made cacti and snakes. They have also spelled their name and glued colored sand to it. There are many books about various deserts and beaches in the library to read. The children can sift through the sand table to search for shells.

    We will be going out most days, so please make sure your child has the appropriate outerwear. 

    Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns at mribera@jacksonsd.org
