March, 2019

March is going to be a very busy month.  Hopefully, the weather will warm up and the sun will shine.


A sheet is coming home today explaining the Leprechaun trap that your

child will make at school.  This fun project helps us meet our Minnesota Engineering Standards.


March 6 will be Ash Wednesday and the beginning of 40 Days until Easter Sunday.  It is a wonderful time for us to reflect on how we can be a better person. Each student will write in their Religion book 1 thing they are giving up for Lent and 1 thing they can do for others.  Ask them what they are going to do.


We have had 3 “Junior Achievement” classes taught by Joyce Perry of Winona National Bank, cancelled because of the weather.  We will learn about how our community works through interactive lessons. I am very grateful for the opportunity to have this wonderful program in our school.
