The 7 Habits of Happy Kids by Sean Hovey:

This month’s habit is, “Synergize, working together is better!” Working together means I get along well with other people and work well in a group. I value the strengths of others and allow myself to learn from them. I know that when working together as a team we can accomplish more and come up with better solutions then I could alone. Please discuss this with your little one and model this habit often.

Unit 5 Activity Calendar: Please note that the Unit 5:

Solving Problems Through Technology booklet and the activity calendar were sent home two weeks ago. Consider doing each day’s activities in place of or in addition to your child’s reading homework. If you do each activity on the calendar and sign each activity, your child can turn it in for three Bulldog Bucks!

Spring Break: There will be no school March 16th through 20th.
