100th Day!

We celebrated the 100th Day of school on Friday.  We participated in many, fun “100” activities such as making “100” trail mix counting 100 steps and more.  We collected well over 100 cans of food for the needy during our 100th day food drive.  The children were very proud to help those in need. Thank you for your donations!

Whole Family Night

If you would like to learn more about Social Emotional Learning in the classroom, you are welcome to join us on Thursday, February 7th at 6:00.  You and your child will visit different classrooms to experience several SEL activities.  This will be followed by a PTA meeting at 7:00.

Valentine’s Day is approaching!

In kindergarten we will be decorating a shoe box to hold our valentines cards. We will be needing some fun supplies for this purpose.  We could use any and all of the following –

stick on foam shapes

old valentines


wiggly eyes

washi tape

any other “valentine-ish” supplies

Thank you!

Valentine’s Day

We will be celebrating Valentine’s Day on Thursday, February 14th.  Please have your child bring their valentine cards that morning, as we will begin passing them out first thing.  The party will be that afternoon at 1:00.  Parents are welcome to come and help.

Please bring an un-decorated, covered shoe box to school by Monday, February 4th.  We will be decorating them at center time. We have sent white paper and instructions to cover the boxes home.  Please make sure your child can get the lid on and off.

Lee Live!

What is Lee Live?   It is a fun evening for adults to dance to great music, eat yummy food and socialize with friends and neighbors. Historically, kindergarten is the least represented grade in attendance. We want to change that this year! We would like for the Lee Live venue to be bursting at the seams with kindergarten parents.

 If you are new to Lee this is a great opportunity to meet fellow Roadrunners while helping to support the many amazing things going on at our little school.  Save the date –Saturday, March 2nd and join us at Springdale Station for what will be an awesome night of live music and celebration.
