The Grove Grizzly
Our final week of the Family Reading Program concluded today!! Wow, the last five weeks flew by so quickly!! We certainly had a blast highlighting reading at school and hope that it was an enjoyable experience for all of our families at home as well! The announcement and details regarding the BIG EVENT will be coming soon! Thank you to all of our families for making reading a priority by spending time increasing students amount of time reading at home and reading together!
We continue to assess and adjust our safety practice on an ongoing basis. Be sure to check out the new window decals and images that have been added to front entrance of the school in order to limit an outside view directly into the building. Not only are they an added safety measure, but they show off our Grizzly Pride!!
SAVE THE DATES – Parent/Teacher Conferences
We will be holding out spring parent/teacher conferences on Wednesday, March 18th from 4-7 p.m. and Thursday, March 19th from 3-7 p.m. I will be sending an official letter with details regarding conferences to parents next week but wanted to make sure that parents are able to plan accordingly in order to schedule conferences during the conference days designated by the District.
3rd Grade Folk Dance Night
Our third graders have been hard at work learning dances for our Third Grade Folk Dance Night, and this event is quickly approaching!  Please make sure that you have marked your calendars for Thursday evening, March 12th. The students have been learning a variety of folk dances in their music class, and this event will be a way for them to share their learning with their families.  Please note that there are different arrival times and locations for different classes.  Our third graders will be performing a dance for family members in the Multipurpose Room as well as participating in the main event in the gym.  Some classes will arrive a little early for this, and some will stay a few minutes later for this. Please click the link to the information letter with all of the details for the evening in both English and Spanish!!!
