February 2014 Newsletter

clipartHappy Groundhog’s Day to all! Punxsutawney Phil did see his shadow so we will have 6 more weeks of winter.  Hopefully, we won’t have to miss any more school because of it!  Due to missed school, as of today, our last day will be June 9, 2014.

On February 10th, we will be celebrating 100 fabulous days of school!  The school year is flying by and we are very busy learning!

February is filled with fun and excitement at HES!  We look forward to honoring Honest Abe Lincoln’s birthday and Valentine’s Day.  Please remember that we will be celebrating with parties and cards but the whole district will not be allowing candy attached to cards.  Pencils and other non-edible treats are a-ok!  Room parents will be the only ones allowed to bring food for the parties.  We look forward to a day full of LOVE and KINDNESS on 2/14.

On Monday, 2/17, there is no school for President’s Day and then on Friday, 2/21, we start the ever-famous CLIMBING UNIT in P.E.  Come volunteer to spot our children as they climb, ascend, and hang!

On Thursday, 2/27, and Friday, 2/28, we will be holding parent teacher conferences.  Don’t forget to schedule a time with your child’s teacher to learn all about your child’s academic growth. There is no school on Friday due to conferences.

And that’s not all – the book fair begins on 2/21 with a FABULOUS FAMILY FUN NIGHT!  Join us for the awesome MAD SCIENCE show! On Feb 28th, we will have a GRAND EVENT where grandparents can bring their grandchildren to the book fair and spoil them with the gift of books!  See more information from our PTO.

Thank you again for your continued support.  As always, if you have any questions or input, please do not hesitate to call or e-mail me.  I can be reached at martinj@hawthorn73.org or (847) 990-4800.

Stay warm.  Wishing you all the best,
