This week is Lutheran Schools week!  A blue paper was sent home last week regarding the theme days and activities for this week. 

We will also continue our fun with snow related activities.  Last week was a short week and we, also, had a delay day.  Several students were out either sick or on family trips.  Many of our snow themed activities we simply did not get to or many students missed fun things that we are using to decorate our room.  So, we will move on in the alphabet with learning and having fun with the letter T.  But, we will extend all of our fun snow themed activities we missed last week.
