February 11th - February 15th

As Valentine´s Day is around the corner, we are requesting you to help your child decorate a shoe box to be used as their mailbox. Be creative, and let your child brainstorm the ideas that he/she would like their box to look like. We are going to display all these lovely mailboxes on Thursday, February 14th for your child to deliver their valentine cards for their friends. This is a voluntary activity. However, if you decide to participate, the only request that we have is that the students should bring one card or treat to each one of the First Grade students. This mailbox should be in school on Wednesday, February 13th.
We have a total of 26 students! Here is the list….

As you all know our little ones love helping out. Here at Discovery School we pride ourselves in doing just that.  Early Childhood is pleased to announce our community service project. CEPUDO is a wonderful organization that helps out different areas in our community. One of those areas is lending a helping hand to newborn babies and moms born in Hospital Materno Infantil. This project (which is TOP SECRET for the students at the moment) has several steps.
We need your help in order to make this a successful learning experience for our students. The first step is where you the parents come in please send in 100 Lempiras per child by next Friday February 15th. 

This money will be used to purchase a tote bag/ diaper bag with the Discovery School logo on it. 
More information about our project will follow in the weeks to come.

Progress reports will be sent home on Friday, February 15th. Conferences are on a need-to-meet basis. If you would like to schedule a conference, please let us know.

This coming Monday, February 18th there will be no school due to President’s Day Holiday. Enjoy your long weekend!
This week your child will be inquiring into the following:

This week your child will be reviewing all the Word Walls with various chants and activities. The spelling challenge will be on Friday, February 15th. The five new words that we will be introducing this week are:


For this week, we will be learning about Abraham Lincoln for President's Day. The children will write an informative piece about all the facts they will be learning. If you happen to have any books, posters, or any other resource that might be useful for us, it would be greatly appreciated. 

We are going to finish reading the stories from the book Mouse Soup by Arnold Lobel.
