Week at a Glance February 4 – 8

Dear VWS Families,

A few things to note this week: First – we may or may not have more snow this week; regardless, the temperatures are forecast to remain cool, so please make your child is dressed appropriately for outdoor play at recess. Next – a reminder that the previously scheduled Digital Citizenship talk with Jesse Miller is cancelled this week. We are looking at potential dates after Spring Break to reschedule. Finally – there will not be a Coffee Morning this week. The kitchen will be in use in preparation for the Chinese New Year celebration that day after school. Perhaps you would like to organize yourselves for a forest walk instead?
