March Madness continues for the staff at Pequea, and students are welcome to join us!
Monday – Alma Mater Day (wear high school or college attire). Welcome back Nealon! Tuesday – Tartan Tuesday (wear plaid or flannel) Wednesday – Workout Wednesday (wear favorite exercise gear) . Math test on money. Spelling and vocab test as well. Today is the rescheduled “Dave Hagerman’s Extreme Science Assembly” from the snow day last month. Thursday – Thankful Thursday (Do something to express your gratitude for someone). PTO virtual meeting at 6:30 Friday – PM Pride Day (wear Penn Manor or Pequea attire). Scholastic Book Orders for March are due today.
Now that the snow has finally melted, students are enjoying more outside time. Thank you for remembering to wear layers to school as it can get chilly and then warm, then chilly again.
Water bottles are to be filled in the morning before school. Pequea has a touchless bottle-refill station to be used in an emergency. We are not looking to see a revolving-door of students in and out to refill bottles during class time.
Our poetry unit is beginning in writing time. The Szentesy Squad is excited to use a new style of writing to express themselves on paper.
Did you see the blue form about the Extra Credit project for Social Studies? A few ideas were shared in the classroom this week. Take your time and have fun with this optional project!
Friday is our last day of Art. We begin Library Instruction on Monday!
Students should have their laptops CHARGED every morning. Many children said they took their headphones home but have failed to return them to school. Thank you for helping to look. If you need assistance, please let me know and I will get headphones for your student.
Reusable water bottles are needed for your student. He or she may fill up the water bottle in the morning, and again at lunch. If emergency refills are needed throughout the day, more trips to our touchless water-filling station can be taken.
Reminder that our Read-a-Thon will begin on March 1. I can’t wait to see the increase in reading for fun (and to raise FUNds!)
