Hello Leopold Families. I've got some catching up to do since I missed last week's email...
Our next BoxTop contest deadline is February 18. Forms were sent home some time back, but are available online here. If you can group the boxtops in sets of 25 on the sheets or in baggies, it's helpful, but we'll take whatever you can turn in to teachers by February 18. Let's keep filling the MineCraft creeper in the lobby!
The PFO Family Conversation / Meeting scheduled for this Tuesday, February 11, has been cancelled. Our next meeting will be March 11, where we'll cover the Timber Wolf Trample and other great stuff.
Tuesday, February 17th Culver's Night has also been cancelled. We look forward to scheduling his for another time. Mark your calendars for Qdoba Night on March 18.
Crock Pot Cooking Classes
Leopold will be hosting a crock pot cooking class on Tuesdays during Open Schoolhouse beginning March 11 and ending April 8. This five-week course, offered in both English and Spanish, will show families how to prepare several nutritious meals for $10 or less. Each family that participates will receive a free crock pot and recipes, as well as the ingredients for each meal.
A yellow form was sent home with students to register, but you can also register by contacting Kao Yong Thao at 204-4334 firstname.lastname@example.org. A $5 deposit is required to hold your spot, but will be returned to you at the end of the session.
School Day Changes
Due to school closings during the extremely cold weather over the past couple of months, adjustments are being made to the school day schedule. All elementary schools in Madison will add six minutes to the end of each school day beginning Monday, February 3. Dismissal time at Leopold will be at 2:38 pm. In addition, the last day of school, June 12, will also be a full day.
Park Commission Meeting Announcement
