Dear Parents, 
We hope you enjoyed your weekend! 

We need your cooperation. We will begin our explanatory writing unit (How To). For this unit, we will be doing various activities here in class and at home. This week, the students will be making their own sandwich/ baleada/wrap. Your child needs to choose one (sandwich/baleada/wrap) and bring in the necessary ingredients. Each child will make their own and eat it for snack on that day. Please send in the ingredients on Wednesday morning (February 24th).

We will begin our maps, legends, and fairy tale unit in Social Studies and Reading. If you have any maps, globes, compasses, legends, or fairy tales, please send them in with your child. Please make sure your child's name is on the items, so we can return to them back to you at the end of the unit. 

Dr. Seuss's birthday is coming up soon! if your child would like to share any of their favorite books, please have your child bring them in.
