February Newsletter

February 2017

Dear Families,

Pack your suitcases, kids; we are going on a cruise around the world!

This month students will be “Cruising the Continents” learning about different cultures around the world. Our class will be focusing on the cultures and customs of South Korea. We will learn about the food they eat, music they listen to, language they speak and so much more!

Each class in first grade will highlight a different country around the world. Our students will be learning about Africa, Brazil, Germany, Hawaii, Greece, Mexico, Australia and Antarctica. I encourage you to ask them where their flight took them each day and hear about the fun facts they have learned about each destination.

We hope that you are able to join us on Friday, February 24th for our Cruising Presentation from 8:45-10:00 in the gym. Students will be performing a special song, dance or activity to highlight the cultures they have been learning about during our social studies unit.

Below are some important dates to remember:

Wednesday, February 1 – Early Release Day 12:45 dismissal
Tuesday, February 14 – Valentine’s Day cards due for our class party
Friday, February 24 – Cruising Presentation 8:45-10:00 in the gym

Monday, February 27 – No School February Vacation Begins
