Toy Drive

Bring in a new WRAPPED toy for the Toy Drive!  The toy must be wrapped, must have a label that says if it is for a boy or a girl and the toy must be for the Kindergarten age.  These gifts are due by Wednesday, December 17. We will be taking the presents to church on Thursday.

Christmas Program

Our school Christmas program will be on Thursday, December 18th. The Kindergarten class will be singing “All I Want For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth”. The words to the song has been posted on the blog and sent home. Please practice this song at home with your child.

Uniform Reminder

Students are no longer allowed to wear shorts.

Buddy Activity

We will be having a surprise buddy activity with 5th grade on Thursday afternoon. We will be making gingerbread houses with them and they will be helping us write a letter to the North Pole. PLEASE MAKE SURE TO KEEP THIS A SECRET!

Behavior Chart

I have started a behavior chart with the class. I will be giving students a sticker on their chart randomly throughout the day for good behavior. Once the chart is completed, the students will be taking them home. Please be sure to congratulate them and let them know how proud you are.

Parent Volunteer Hours

It is required that parents fulfill 40 hours of volunteer hours with the school. I am aware that some parents are unable to come to school to volunteer; therefore, parents are allowed to receive volunteer hours by working at home. I have center activities I would like to have created. Please let me know if this is something you would be interested in doing.
