I don't know about you, but I am ready for the wonderful Texas weather to come back.  Cold and rainy is not conducive to students playing outside.  I think we all have cabin fever!

There were lots of indoor activities with No Name Calling Week.  Check out Ms. Ahumada's blog for more information.

 The bag "bad" words...
 This morning we also recognized our winners for the pedometer challenge.  I am not sure what the total was, but we walked hundred of thousands of steps.
 Next week kicks off our first annual Readathon.  This is a district fundraiser that we have selected to participate in.  Ask your child more about the program.  Plus I am sure Ms. Underwood will add information to the Eagle Eye.
During this morning's general PTA meeting, we heard Carrie Contey speak.  She is a nationally know parenting expert and has wonderful suggestions about how to parent children. 

Next week will be a busy week with fieldtrips and Science Fair.  If you have a 3rd - 5th grader, their project were due this past week.  They will be on display Wednesday in the cafeteria.  If you are interested in your child's project being judge for the Austin Regional Science Fair, let your child's teacher know immediately. 

Hopefully the weather improves this weekend, so the students can get outside and play.   Remember that next weekend is our annual CATCH Fun Run and Student Council Clean-up day.  Mark your calendars now.
