Good morning parents,
  Happy Wednesday! Please remember to practice the assigned Memory Treasure on Monday nights with your child. It's so important for them to learn Scripture, so please help with that! There won't be Show and Tell this week because we don't have school tomorrow (2/8) or Friday (2/9). Enjoy your long weekend! The kids will be making their own Sight Word cards today, so take time this weekend to practice. 
  Next Monday-Thursday is Spirit Week, see the list below for the theme for each day:
** Monday, February 12th- Crazy Hat Day
** Tuesday, February 13th- Twin Day
** Wednesday, February 14th- Pajama Day
** Thursday, February 15th- Blue and White Day
** Pep Rally at 2:00 on Thursday.

  Tuesday, February 13th is the 100th day of school. I have a number of activities planned throughout the day to celebrate this special day. I've included 2 worksheets to fill out with your child this weekend. If you can, please send 100 of something (pennies, stickers, gum, baseball cards, paperclips...) to share. It'll come home on Tuesday. Also, we'll be making a special 100th day of school trail mix, so please sign up to bring something from the link below. Thanks in advance for helping with that!!

  Next week we'll be working on the following:
** Christ light ** The day the sun kept shining & Joshua says goodbye
** Memory Treasure ** Seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Matthew 6:33
** Math ** Unit 10

  Important Calendar Items:
* Thursday & Friday, February 8th & 9th: No School (GROW Conference)

** Upcoming Field Trip to the Houston Zoo on Friday, March 2nd.

  My Mom will be coming to visit tomorrow and she'll be spending a couple weeks with us in the classroom. So if you see a shorter (and very pretty) lady next to me, it's probably her! If you're able, come meet her. She loves coming down from Michigan to meet my students and get to know them. 

  Bible Passage for the week: Jesus looked at them and said, "With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible." Matthew 19:26

  Have a great Wednesday, stay warm and dry :)
