I hope you all are having a great weekend! I just wanted to give out a few reminders for this upcoming week. On Monday and Thursday we will have P.E. with Ms. Locke. She is still planning on taking the class outside for P.E. Please make sure to have your child bring in their snow gear for these days. Snow pants, coat, gloves, hat, and boots are needed for P.E. class. Homework for this week will only consist of reading. There is no math or spelling/writing homework. This week is also Read Across America Week at SMS. Below you will find a quick reminder of the days for this week. It is completely optional if students would like to participate in any of the events for this week. Take care and have a great week!

Our SMS P.E. Teacher, Ms. Locke is asking that all students bring their snow gear (jackets, snow pants, gloves, boots, hats, etc) for this Friday. She is planning on bringing the class outside for a little snow fun as long as the weather cooperates. If you have any questions please let me know or you can contact Ms. Locke. Thanks!
It certainly has been interesting week up to this point with the snow day yesterday and the delayed opening today. Right now the weather forecasters are saying we might end up with another day off tomorrow. There is no homework this week due to the Patriots winning the Super Bowl. I promised the students last week that if the Patriots won on Sunday that there would be no homework for the week. Report Cards were sent home last Friday. If you have not already, please send the report card envelope back in at your earliest convenience. I do not need the report card back. Below you will find a few reminders for future events. Have a great week and let me know if you have any questions.

I hope you all are having a great start to the week. It is hard to believe that the month of January is just about over. With this in mind, Valentine's Day is not too far away. Coming home tomorrow will be a class list of names, as 2S will be exchanging Valentine's Day cards on February 14th. We will not be having a Valentine's Day party, but instead exchanging cards. Students are welcome to bring in store bought valentine's or make them at home. Valentine's Day cards with candy are okay as long as it does not contain any tree nuts or made in a facility that has tree nuts in them. Please contact me if you should have any questions.
