A NOTE FROM MS. NANCY AND MS. DEBI
Our Registration for the upcoming school year has officially begun. In house registration is from February 1st – 28th. Because slots are very limited in some classes, registration will be on a first come, first serve basis. Packets and new pricing can be picked up in the office from Ms. Abbey or in the main foyer. On March 1st, registration is open to the public. Anyone not registered at that time will be put on our waiting lists. We hope you will continue to be a part of Rising Star and register early. Thank you in advance for choosing our school and being a part of our family.

• We will discuss money and its value.

• We have started learning our states in preparation for our Geography Bee in March. Master Copies of the colored coded map have been sent home with the all day students. If your child is four and would like to participate, they can learn
the Pink, Green, and Orange States. See Ms. Nancy for a copy of the States if you have not already received one. Our Valentine Party will be on February 14th from 10:15 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. It will be very low keyed with the exchanging of cards and a snack for the children. We ask that each child bring in cards signed only and not addressed to a
particular child. This allows each child to hand out their own cards without having to read a name.
