Happy February! What a LOVEly month it is! We are halfway through the school year! As a Homestead Community, we have done a tremendous job working together to keep our children, families and the staff safe during such a crazy time! The children are enjoying school each day and the teachers have created an environment that feels as normal as possible for our little ones. That is a task that, last summer, seemed impossible! We thank everyone for all of their efforts and dedication!
Our Crafts at Lunch Program has begun. Thank you to everyone who signed up via the SUG to donate crafts for the inclement weather days! I have been hearing how much the children are enjoying it. The PTA has donated Jumbo Jenga and Jumbo Connect 4 as additional recess items. The Health and Safety Committee is also donating Sight Word, Rhyming and Numbers Bingo for the class to play at recess as well, on inclement weather days. Thank you to all who support the PTA. These are just a few of the ways the PTA gives back to the students.
The children are all very excited for the special days we have this month. Valentine’s Day is a holiday loved by our children. They can send in their class Valentines (non edible please), by February 3. The items will quarantine for one week and will be given out to the children on February 12. Your child’s teacher will communicate any other pertinent info.
February 5 is Sports Shirt Day! Wear your favorite sports shirt or Garden City colors to celebrate the Super Bowl.
The 100th Day of School, February 24, is quickly approaching as well. Please look out for specific info from your child’s teacher.
Virtual Arts in Ed Yoga is starting back up! More info to follow from your child’s teacher.
The PTA is hosting a few District-Wide initiatives that may be of interest to you. Check out our main PTA Newsletter for information about Parent University and PARP. They have a great selection of events taking place this month! We thank the members of these committees for your efforts in bringing these exciting PTA programs to our parents, even in a pandemic. We also encourage all PTA members to attend our next All Schools PTA Meeting at 7:30 PM on Wednesday, February 10. You can also visit https://gardencitypta.org/ to learn more about these events.
We wish you all a safe and healthy winter break!
