Dear Parents, 

Thanks to all the parents who have participated in the Step-It-Up fundraiser. We have reached our goal of $16,000 for additional Chromebooks for the school. The more we raise, the closer we will get to having one-to-one computers. Congratulations to our first mini-fridge winner, Miriam Hallet from Ms. Auten's class. We still have one more week to go. All you have to do to get prizes is send out emails.

Please be on the lookout for a parent survey. The survey will be sent via email from the district. This survey is important to our school. Please take a few minutes to fill this out when it arrives in your inbox.

Please remember that our in-person students should not be joining our digital classrooms when they are out sick. The only time in-person students should move to digital learning is if they are quarantined due to Covid. We do want to make sure you are keeping your child home if they are sick, but this would be treated like a normal sick day and the student would just be out sick. Do not forget to email your teacher the reason your child is out sick. That way, they will be marked excused for the absence.

Have a great weekend! Don't forget to encourage your child to read every night and make sure they are taking AR tests.
GREAT job so far to all of our students working hard to raise money for Chromebook and classroom supplies for our teachers! We are making AWSOME progress and we cannot wait to see our final results. As a reminder, everyone who sends out 10 emails or text messages will be entered to win an iPad!!!! There is still time to register and raise money for our school at: www.stepitupkids.com/RDHead30047

Virtual Book Fair
Save the dates!  Online shopping will begin Feb 27 and run through March 12.  Click the link below or share with family and friends for them to add $ to your student ewallets to purchase books!  

Your child can shop with ewallet just like in person!   The new difference with eWallet is this feature will now act like a debit and anything not spent will carry over to the next book fair.   If you add $25 and only spend $20.50, the balance of $4.50 will be ready for the next fair.   If you switch to a new school that has Scholastic,  you will still be able to use it!  Or you can used it at the Scholastic store online (not eligible for the in-class sale flyers.)  This feature option will be available on Saturday, Feb 6 to share with family and friends!   Shopping opens Saturday Feb 27!  It's time to stock up on Spring reading!

Happy Reading!
