What a busy week we have in store here in 1st Grade. Beacon Park is taking part in Penny Wars starting this week. Students can bring in pennies to raise money for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Any silver coins brought in can be put in other classrooms’ bags to take points away. The class that raises the most money will earn a pizza/pasta party. Information was sent home last week. Spirit Awareness Week is upon us: Students can dress up in different colors to support many different causes: Monday- orange for Leukemia; Tuesday- blue for Autism Awareness; Wednesday- Green for Mental Health; Thursday- black for Violence Awareness; Friday- Pink for Breast Cancer.
Students will take part in the Fun Run Pep Rally on Tuesday. Please look for information coming home this week to support Beacon Park!
Friday is Valentine’s Day. Students can decorate a bag or box at home to collect Valentines on Friday. Students are welcome to bring in Valentines on Friday to pass out to each classmate. No need to put classmate names on the Valentines. Just have your child sign his/her name. We look forward to a wonderful week.
