Dear Spencer Pointe Families,
Welcome to March! We are looking forward to an exciting month that hopefully brings us some warmer weather and more outdoor recess.
We are planning some great activities for Dr. Seuss’ birthday on March 2nd. Each class will do a Seuss read aloud and follow up with an activity that relates to the story.
Our 2nd graders are preparing to continue learning the importance of community. They will participate in the St. Jude’s Math-a-Thon to raise money for cancer research. Parents will receive information on March 6th.
Remember to wear your green for St. Patrick’s Day. All grade levels will be doing special St. Patrick’s Day activities on Thursday, March 17th. There are stories of leprechaun traps for 2nd grade, center rotations for 1st grade and more special surprises for our 3rd graders.
Our 2nd trimester report cards will come home this week as well. Be sure to take a few minutes to celebrate with your child and praise his/her accomplishments. Think of the child that entered our doors in August and the one bringing home his report card now. How have they changed? Is it a reading level that has improved or a math score? Is it a behavior or learner characteristic that has shown improvement? Continue to celebrate the successes in life.
Spring break is scheduled for March 25 through April 1st. Enjoy this time with your family and we look forward to seeing the students back on Monday, April 3rd.
