 Dear Parents,


     We will exchange valentine cards with our classmates on Friday, February 12th. I will be sending home a list of students’ names for your convenience. Please keep in mind that if your child is participating in the  Valentine exchange, they MUST bring a Valentine for every student in the class. Students may decorate a box or bag at home to collect their cards. If a child does not have a bag, I can provide them with one.   If you would like to send in a special healthy treat for that day, please contact me.  

    Just a reminder that our Wonderworks field trip is ahead in April.  If you are interested in being a chaperone, please be sure that your slip to be included in the drawing, as well as your Volunteer application have all been given to me prior to closing of school on the 10th.

    Please initial all of your child's homework after you have reviewed each assignment for completeness, accuracy and neatness.  Agenda planners need to be initialed on a daily basis after all homework assignments have been completed and checked.  Your child's behavior number will be written daily in their agenda.  Please check for your child's AR Tracker.  Each AR Tracker was updated this week.

  • On The Villages Charter School home page you will find the Box Tops Collection Form under the link Forms/Documents/Newsletters.  This is a great way to organize all of those box tops you have been graciously turning in to the school.  We have raised a lot of money through this program.  



  •  Reading will improve fluency, stamina, vocabulary, and comprehension, that being said, please help your child find books and time to read for their AR Goal.
