Dear Parents, I hope you all had a great weekend. There is a lot of important information on this weeks post. Please read all the way to the bottom!

Our DPTO is working very hard putting together a fabulous night of games and prizes for Friday, March 8. Please invite your family and friends to this wonderful BINGO night! Great prizes await you! Also, you can purchase Bingo tickets with any DPTO member or in the main office for only L250!

It is that amazing time of the school year when students in grades K-5 will be participating in a reading journey to commemorate Dr. Seuss’ birthday. Beginning March 4, students will be reading books, completing activities and recording their progress not only towards an individual competition but towards an area goal to fill Dr. Seuss’ hats in Early Childhood and ElementaryReading logs will be distributed next Monday, March 4. Please take the time to motivate your child into reading, reading, reading! This competition will last until March 29, and the winners of each grade will receive a prize from our DPTO.

All the daddies are invited to come and have fun playing sports games with your child on Thursday March 14th to commemorate your day which in Honduras is celebrated on March 19th. The fun will start from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. First Grade DADS and kids need to wear a green shirt. Uncles are welcome if dads are not able to come!! Make sure that you come wearing running shoes, shorts, and a cap. Also bring a water bottle and sunblock!

Reading to the Kindergarten Students. We will continue to devote one day of the week to read books to the Kindergarten students for a period of 20 minutes. This is a great opportunity for the children to practice their reading strategies, improve their fluency, and use the sight words learned in context. The First Graders are extremely excited to be the big kids who are getting ready to move on to second grade. For this activity, we require that the students bring a book from home that they feel comfortable reading and that would be easy for a 5 year old to understand. If you do not have a book, we are going to be using one from our classroom or the school library.

This week your child will be inquiring in 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, March 8th. The five new words that we will be introducing this week are:


We will continue practicing Two-Digit Addition and Subtraction. You may want to practice with them at home. If you do, please emphasize that we always need to start with the ones place.

We will be honoring Dr. Seuss 115th birthday by studying about his biography and reading books about him. Thank you to those of you who have already sent books to share with the class. The students are very excited to share them with their friends but also to read books that are new to them. The students will choose their favorite book about him and will be writing about it. One of Dr. Seuss books is called Wacky Wednesday. For this reason, on Wednesday your child can come to school with Crazy Hair! They will sure have a blast!
