In Preschool we just finished a study on Pets. The children learned about the different kinds of pets, how to care for pets, how pets make them feel and they make pets feel. The students helped create a pet store, sorting, labelling, and pricing all the animals. The students really wanted a class pet so they wrote a letter to Dr. Guthals, asking permission for a pet fish. We were excited to hear that she said yes! Our study finished with a visit to the Longmont Humane Society. The children got a behind the scenes tour and even got to meet a few friendly pets.
Please remember that if your student is sent home with a fever or vomiting; it is best for them to stay home for at least 24 hours. SVVSD policy is to send home any student who has vomited or has a fever of 100.1 or higher. Thank you for your support!
Congratulations to three Fall River robotics teams on their qualification for the State Robotics Tournament! Join us March 3 at Trail Ridge Middle School beginning at 10:15 to see our students compete! Thank you to Mr. Medlock and all the parents and students involved in our robotics program! Good luck on Saturday.
Our next PTO meeting will be on Monday, March 12, from 6-7:30p. Our special guest this month is Eddie Cloke, principal at Trail Ridge Middle School. He will speak briefly on life at TRMS and will take questions from the audience. If you are at all anxious about sending your child off into the great unknown of middle school, this is your chance to learn more in the comfort of familiar surroundings. We hope that many families will choose to take advantage of this opportunity. As usual, childcare for children ages 3 years and up will be available.
Eco-Cycle has invited us to join in a contest to increase recycling at our school, and possibly win $$ for our school, too! The contest will run until Spring Break. Student Council made posters and have been making weekly announcements to encourage our students to recycle in the lunchroom. Our goal is to increase the amount of recyclable items here at school that end up in recycling instead of the trash, especially drink containers.
Greetings from the Learning Lab To all the families that participated in the Spring Conference PTO Book Exchange, thank you. It was the most successful Exchange yet. Hundreds of books were donated and adopted into new homes. Congratulations to our community of generous readers. You Rock!
