We had such a fun day with our Valentine Celebration! The kids LOVED looking at all their valentines, learning about St. Valentine, playing games, creating crafts, and spending time with their friends. Thank you, once again, to our room moms for getting all of our fun treats.
Our upcoming trip for Poetry Pals is planned for next Wednesday, February 19th. We will be going to the Islamic Foundation School to learn about our Muslim friends and their faith. Since the Islamic Foundation School is so far away in Villa Park, we will be joining our new friends for lunch. We are asking all students to pack a nut and PORK free lunch for this trip. (Example lunch items would include a cheese sandwich, skinny pop, cream cheese and jelly bagel, yogurt, pretzels, fruits and veggies.)
The dress up theme for this trip is dress as “Future You”. This can be interpreted as many things. You can dress as tomorrow future you, college future you, career future you or, even beyond. We would also like to request that all students wear socks. When we visit the holy space, we will be asked to remove our shoes.
This week we learned about time zones. This is yet another hard concept for a third grader to grasp. See if they can explain it to you!
