Dear Parents,

Albeit the freezing temperatures, I hope that you all had a wonderful long weekend. This week in class we will check in about our service learning projects and hear from students who have already gotten started. We will start our presentations the week of Jan. 29th.

  • Here are photos from our MN Zoo Field Trip:  #CheckOutFieldTripPics .
  • COMMUNICATION: E-mail is the best way to reach me. Check the Back & Forth Folder for notes. If they are not arriving home, Hedwig will fly them over!
  • Please dress for the cold temperatures & wear a WARM coat, hat and boots so you are ready for recess time.  

Have a great week!  -Ms. Krawetz :-)
