Help! Missing Books!

I am missing several books, especially chapter books, so if you could please look in your child’s room or backpacks to see if maybe they have disappeared or are in hiding in those places it would be greatly appreciated. Most of the books that I have in my classroom are books that I have purchased with my personal money and would love to have those books for future classes to enjoy. Thank you for your help!

Valentine’s Day Parties

Tomorrow is our Valentine’s Day Party 12:00-1:00. Parents are invited to come and enjoy the fun with us. I will have a sign out sheet in the classroom if you would like to take your child home with you after the party.

*Mrs. Koonce has asked that you not eat lunch with your child tomorrow because we will have so many people in the building for the parties.
