The boys and girls heard two stories with the Mystery Reader this week: One Fish Two Fish by Dr Suess and The Mystery Bear by A Purim Story.

As a reminder – your child brought a book home to enjoy for the winter break.  If you have not returned it, please do so at your earliest convenience.

A little help from our friends:  One of our ballerinas has misplaced her tights.  If anyone has acquired an extra pair they might be hers.  Please send them in with your child.

Thank you all for all you do!  We appreciate you and we look forward to collaborating with you this year!

Love,
