Primary C Weekly Note

Dear Primary C Families,

Happy early Valentine’s Day and Presidents’ Day! We spent some time today celebrating Valentine’s Day by sharing Valentine cards and seeing the TPS Talent Show. We were very proud of our PrC performers: Maggie, Pearl, Paloma, Anabelle, Avery, Amelia, Lisa, and Itzy.

Today is the last day of our Reach Out and Read read-a-thon! Please help your child begin contacting sponsors to collect pledges. Checks should be made out to Reach Out and Read and sent in as soon as possible. We are well on our way to bringing many children needed books when they visit their pediatricians!

As we head into the long weekend, we are feeling so excited and thankful about the rich conversations students shared around Wants and Needs in our city. This week we were visited by Stephanie Sena who runs SREHEUP, a shelter serving men who are experiencing homelessness in Philadelphia. Later today, we’ll be sending a letter from Stephanie describing her visit to our classroom along with some ways we can support the shelter.

Questions to ask your children this weekend:

  • What book are you reading in book club?
  • What work places did you play this week?
  • What was your favorite talent from the show today?

Bundle up, and have a warm and cozy long weekend,

Kaitlin and Jennifer
