Aspen Updates February 9, 2018

Parents, please don’t forget to sign the report card (mid-term) envelope and send it back to school.  The contents inside the envelope are for you to keep!

Also, if you haven’t done so already, please send back the Returning Student Form. This form helps us plan more accurately for next year.

Early Release Day

Tuesday, February 13 is an early release day.  Students will be dismissed at 11:25 that day, after they have had their lunch.  Also, February 19 is a NO SCHOOL Day in observance of President’s Day.  And finally, Friday, February 23 is also a NO SCHOOL Day.  Parent/Teacher conferences will be taking place that day, as well as incoming Kindergarten registration.

Valentines Day Parties

The PTO-sponsored Valentines Day parties will be taking place in every classroom on Wednesday, February 15 at 1:00 p.m.  Our room parents are busy planning plenty of fun and games for the students that day.

Book Fair

The Book Fair is coming!  Come and visit the book fair during the Family Night on Friday, February 16.  Students will be given a chance to visit the Fair during the day and put a wish list together.  Also, we will be doing a fundraiser, All For Books, again this year.  This fundraiser not only benefits our school, but it also benefits children in need. Every dollar raised equals 1 Scholastic book donated to a children’s charity, and all the money our school raises goes towards books for our classrooms.  The type of fundraiser this year is Change Wars (see below):

  • Friday, February 16 – Nickel Day
  • Tuesday, February 20 – Dime Day
  • Wednesday, February 21 – Quarter Day
  • Thursday, February 22 – Dollar Day
  • Monday, February 26 – All Change/Money Day

The class that has the most change each day gets a PRIZE!  The class that raises the most overall money through the week gets the GRAND PRIZE!  Thanks, in advance, for supporting our students in this way!
