Aspen Updates February 5, 2016

Throughout the day on Friday, February 5, we will be making surprise announcements for students to “Drop Everything and Read”.  Please encourage your students to bring a book from home that they can read during those times.  We will be adding all those minutes to our school-wide minute total for our 2 million minute goal.

On Saturday, February 6, Aspen will be holding its annual Family University.  Sign up now by visiting our website and by clicking on the Aspen Family Partnership Council link under the “Important” tab. Come and hear Kim Olver present on the art of using consequences in a way that will enhance a long term healthy relationship with your child rather than harm it.  There is also an awesome educational children’s program planned for kids age four and older.  Don’t miss this incredible opportunity – for parents and Aspen students!

Roller skating begins in PE classes on Monday for grades 2-5. Roller skates or roller blades may not be brought from home.  Protective gear may be brought from home.  Just make sure it is marked with the student’s name.  The company provides the school with wrist guards, helmets and knee pads.

On Wednesday, February 10, our kindergartners will celebrate 100th day with a fashion show in the cafeteria at 8:15 a.m.

Also, Wednesday, February 10 is an early release day.  Students will be dismissed at 11:25, after they have had their lunch.

We will be practicing a severe weather drill on Thursday, February 11.
