TEACHER WORK DAY
-No School for Students
-Though not officially a holiday, Valentine's Day can still be a lot of fun. Check with your child's teacher to see if their class will be having activities surrounding this day. Initially this day was given to celebrate the sacrifice of Saint Valentine's, and was not considered a 'romantic' day until around the 18th Century when author Geoffrey Chaucer used it in promoting courtly love.

PRESIDENT'S DAY/ FEDERAL HOLIDAY/ NO SCHOOL
-President's Day, which initially was instituted by Congress in 1879, was originally known as George Washington's Birthday. It is often observed every 3rd Monday in the month of February. For more information on this holiday and the changes that have occurred over the years, click the link below:
TEST TAKING BEGINS FOR 3RD- 6TH GRADE STUDENTS
-Students in the 3rd thru the 6th grade will be testing during this time period. Test schedules will vary for each grade and class, so watch for times and dates of your child's test. These students will be tested on their reading and math skills and comprehension. So let's help our students have the best advantage by making sure they get to school on time, receive enough rest the night before and have a healthy breakfast.Talking with students and encouraging them to 'try their best', may help to reduce anxiety over upcoming tests and help them to feel confident. Communicating with your child's teacher on areas of focus or improvement may help you to understand and work hand in hand with your student to help increase their familiarity with test subject matter. Just remember, YOU can be the difference in helping your child to feel comfortable when their test time comes.
