Dear Families,

The last couple of weeks were spent celebrating many holidays: we colored groundhogs and read about Groundhog’s Day, made many valentines and learned to cut out hearts, made a dragon puppet for Chinese New Year to parade down the hallways, and read about and discussed President’s Day. We will continue our study of Antarctica, studying animals that live there and their habitats. We will also learn about the month of March and start discussing the upcoming season.

Warm regards,

Ms. Jess, Mrs. Pascal, Ms. Nancy & Ms. Dionisia
