It’s Been a Busy Week!

Gonzales – Science 

We compared and contrasted birds and reptiles.

Manning – Science

This week we learned that just like our bodies, plants need certain things to grow and thrive. Plants need sun, water, nutrients, and a place to grow.

Spanish – Stanfield

We love to sing and dance in Spanish class! Movement and song helps us to retain what we have learned and it’s so much fun! This week we made a mask of a farm animal while singing, Vengan a Ver Mi Granja.

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.
