Highlights from Mrs. Hill
February 24, 2014
Thanks go out to all the parents who helped to make our Valentine’s Day party so much fun for the class! There were many activities and special treats enjoyed by all. The kids had a great time celebrating! Thanks so much for your help during the party and the many donations too – I certainly appreciate it. Thanks too for all the Valentine’s Day treats given to me by your children. J
We had a great time celebrating the 100th day of school today! Students participated in a variety of learning activities geared toward the number 100. Ask your child about their favorite part of the day. Your children love to celebrate this special day at school – we’re all 100 days smarter!
Last week Andersonville Elementary hosted local children’s author Martha Swanson. She shared activities that promoted the writing process and also brought some ‘special guests’! If you were not able to send in your book order prior to the assembly it’s not too late to purchase her book, Milly and Roxy. You can order a copy online at www.squareup.com by searching by the author’s name (Martha Swanson). Shipping charges will be waived and your autographed copy will be delivered directly to Andersonville Elementary. The cost with tax is $13.77 and payment can be made with credit card.

During the month of February, Clarkston Elementary Schools will be hosting a Peanut Butter & Jelly Drive for Lighthouse of Oakland County. We are asking families to consider donating a plastic jar of peanut butter and/or jelly to your child’s classroom. Thanks in advance for supporting Lighthouse and donating to help ‘Spread the Love!’
As always, I welcome your comments, concerns or questions. Please feel free to call or write.
Enjoy your week!
