Good morning parents,
  The kids have been looking FANTASTIC this week for Spirit Week! I think we've had almost 100% participation everyday! Tomorrow is the last day for them to dress up, and they should dress in their Cougar Pal Color. Thank you for all your work on making them look so great! I sent the pictures via email, but they're also available on the Kindergarten webpage. The kids will have the opportunity to play beach ball volleyball with their Cougar Pal teams tomorrow afternoon before closing the day with a whole school Pep Rally. 
  I'm out of the classroom today for juror duty, but will be back tomorrow morning. Show and Tell for tomorrow is for the letter N. Next Friday is "Taste of 1st grade" with Mrs. Patterson for the morning hours. I'll be hosting Kindergarten Roundup from 9-11:30 with the future Kindergartners. Please see below message from Mrs. Patterson:
  On Friday, March 1st, your child will have the opportunity to spend some time in first grade. My current first graders are ready to show them all the exciting things about being a first grader at Abiding Word! Your child will play a few games and participate in first grade learning activities. We are looking forward to it!
  Next week we'll be working on the following:
** Christ light ** Jesus Rides Into Jerusalem & The Story of the 3 servants
