                 February Newsletter 2018                   


  Welcome to the wonderful month of February.  With Valentine's Day fast approaching there is a definite feeling of love in the air.  In the beginning of the month we will be focusing on Catholic Schools Week and Valentine's Day.

  Wednesday, January 31st we will begin a NEW version of our school Penny-A-Thon, which will now be known as our Penny War and will last for only one day. In order for your child to fully participate, they should bring silver coins, of any denomination, and as many pennies as possible.  The silver coins offset the pennies in each class’s bucket and the class that has the most pennies at the end of the Penny War is the winner.


January 29-February 2 (Catholic Schools Week)

  On Sunday, January 28th, at the 10:30 AM Mass at Our Lady of The Cross, we will begin our annual observance of Catholic Schools Week.  It is a time set aside each year to celebrate Catholic education with everyone from students, families, faculty, staff, volunteers and community. We will be hosting an Open House for prospective new families at our school beginning at noon.  Listed below are the rest of the events for the week.



Sunday: 10:30 A.M. Mass at Our Lady of the Cross, Open House 12:00-1:30pm

Monday: Show Your Colors Day, the color for our class is RED.

Tuesday: The theme for this day is “Serve”. We will honor our local police, firefighters and ambulance workers.

Wednesday: Character Day, dress as your favorite storybook character.

Thursday: Dress For Success, Mass in the gym at 9:30am

 Friday: Red and Blue Day, students will wear either red or blue shirts, our class is wearing BLUE.

 Feb. 5-16 (Presidents & St. Valentine's Day)                      

These two weeks we have many fun Valentines activities planned and, in addition, we will be focusing on some of our very important Presidents.  On Tuesday, February 13th, we will be having our Valentine's Party due to Ash Wednesday.  If your child would like to exchange valentines please have your child sign his/her name on the card but kindly leave the envelope blank.  This makes it much easier for them to pass out their valentines to their classmates.  We have a total of 19 students in our class.  Please have your child wear red or pink on party day.  This is an offered switch day, therefore, if it is not your child's regularly scheduled day please see me if you would like to add on or exchange for this fun day. If you would like to donate an item of our party, a signup sheet will be available outside the social center door.  Thank you for your support.




February 19-23 (Winter Break-No School) 






February 26-March 2 (Fairy Tales and Fables)

This week we will share some old, but well-known fables, such as The Tortoise and the Hare, The Ant and the Grasshopper and The Emperor’s New Clothes.  We will also discuss some famous fairy tales such as Rapunzel, Puff the Magic Dragon and others.





A few reminders:

Please remember to arrive at the social center door by 7:45 A.M.  We start our prayers at 8:00 A.M. and we need to be in our classroom in order to say them with the entire school.  Thank you for your help with this matter.


Please continue to send your child to school with hats, boots, mittens and a warm winter coat.  Also remember that your child needs a pair of extra shoes or slippers to change into before entering our classroom.
