Jan. 29- Feb.2

We hope you enjoyed your weekend! We have many exciting events for this week, so please read everything below!

100 Days of School is coming up! It will be celebrated on February 9th. Each student should create a project with 100 items at home. Students can use their imagination and creativity. The project should include a total of 100 items. The students will present their project to the class.

This month your child will have the opportunity to purchase books through the International Scholastic Book Clubs. This is an optional activity offered by the school, in case you want to motivate your child to read at home and to increase their own library. With you purchase, our library will accumulate points to redeem for more books for the benefit of you children in our school. The due date to purchase the books online is February 5th.  The books will arrive to the school in one single delivery, and we will distribute them to the students according to their orders, approximately three weeks after the purchase due date. 

This week your child will be reviewing all the Word Wall words with various chants and activities. The spelling challenge will be on Friday, February 2nd.
The new words are:


For this week, we will be continuing reading stories from Mouse Soup.

We will continue with Informative Writing. This kind of writing tells about a person, place, thing, event, or idea. It has sentences that give facts, details, examples, or explanations. This week we are going to research about polar bears. Ask them everything they learned about penguins last week. They are all very excited!

This week we are starting with a new chapter. We will devote the following weeks to study and reinforce place value. The children should know how to count by ones, by twos, by fives and by tens to 120. We will be talking about ones and tens place.


Celebrate the Gift of Friendship- Discovery School has developed a lasting friendship with many of the children at the Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos orphanage.  We would like to extend an invitation for more members of the Discovery community to develop these friendships.  There are two ways to help:
1.      Join the Community Service Club.  Contact Mrs. Agurcia ( for more about this club.
2.      Donate a pair of tennis shoes or socks for to be given to the children at this year's Valentine's friendship party. 

Hearts with the child's name and size are found on the bulletin board on the second floor of the secondary building.  Purchase the shoes or socks and return the item, unwrapped, with the heart tag attached, to Mrs. Agurcia's classroom (Secondary building, Room 7) by Thursday, February 1.

Celebrar el don de la amistad: Discovery School ha desarrollado una amistad duradera con muchos de los niños del orfanato Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos. Nos gustaría extender una invitación para que más miembros de la comunidad Discovery desarrollen estas amistades. Hay dos formas de ayudar:
1) Unirse al Club de Servicio Comunitario. Contactar a Ms. Christina Agurcia ( para más información sobre este club.
2) Donar un par de tenis o calcetines para ser entregados a los niños en la fiesta del Amor y la Amistad San Valentín de este año.

Los corazones con el nombre y el tamaño de tenis del niño se encuentran en el boletín de anuncios en el segundo piso del edificio de secundaria. Compre los zapatos o calcetines y entregarlos sin envolver, con la etiqueta del corazón adjunta, a la clase de la Mrs. Agurcia (edificio secundario, salón # 7) antes del jueves 1 de febrero.
