Mrs. Walker’s Blog Bits- Week of February 7th:

Ducky Winners

Happy Tuesday!  I am finding it hard to believe that we are already 2 weeks into the third quarter.  Before we know it, spring will be here and the countdown to summer break will begin! 

Just a reminder that parent teacher conferences are scheduled for tomorrow, February 9th.  If you are unable to keep your appointment, please contact the office at 943-3800.
I am looking forward to the Valentines Day dance that will be held on Friday.  Last year was the first time that we held the event and it quickly became my favorite!  There is something special to see our students dressed in their best dancing with moms and dads.   I look forward to spending the evening with amazing Amelia families!
Many thanks to all that participated in the Weekly Reader Ducky fundraiser.  We had over 300 completed books returned which will result in approximately 600 free Weekly Reader subscriptions for our students for the 2011-2012 school year.  One lucky 5th grade student, Austin, won the lucky ducky and will be “Principal for the Day” on Friday.  Photos of his principal duties might appear on the blog in the near future!
