Hello 2nd grade parents,

This Wednesday we will celebrate Chinese New Year in our classroom. The students can wear Chinese costumes to school that day; otherwise they will need to in their school uniforms.


We will have crafts and food prepared. I will provide dumplings, and the kids will have the chance to learn how to make dumplings in class with me. The dumplings contain pork, napa cabbage and green onions. Please let me know if your child has any food restriction, and I will see if I can work around it. I would like to have 3-4 parent volunteers to help me with the activities. I also need some paper plates, forks and napkins that should be enough for 35 people please. Please let me know if you can help through emails or ClassDoJo. 


We’ll have our Valentine’s party on Feb.14th-Thursday afternoon. Kids will have party with their PM teachers. I’ve already sent sign-up sheet home, please let me know if you have other questions.

Also if you haven't sign up for the spring conference, please pick your preferred date and time on the paper and return it to me as soon as possible.

If the time doesn't work for you, please let me know and I will try my best to schedule a time that work for both of us.


Last I want to let you know I will be out from Feb. 19-21 for a conference, and Feb. 28-March 2 (during conference days, no school for kids) for another conference. I'm sorry for this inconvenience. Please let me know if you have any questions.
