Week 26

Welcome to week twenty-six! This week’s theme is: Our Heros

Keep sending in Box Tops to help second grade win our school contest!  The grade with the most box tops per-capita on March 8th get a "Uniform Free Day."

Quail Run will be holding an afternoon social to give students the opportunity to say good bye to Mrs. Tammy Yorgason and Mrs. Colleen Slade on Friday, February 22, 2013 from
2:30-3:00 pm in the lunchroom.  This is a unique opportunity and we hope that many parents can join with us as we bid them farewell.  

Please remember to send your student's "Take Home Reading" books back to school so our volunteers can send home a new book for your child.  

Here is a look at what we are learning this week:
