I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend!

Friday: Students will wear their spirit shirts.  Friday is also Winter Wonderland day.  Students will be able to accessorize with winter clothes (mittens, scarves, hats, boots, jackets, etc).  Please bring in $1 if your child would like to participate.  This is a fundraiser to get an In ‘n Out truck in the spring.

Food allergies/special diets: Please let me know if your child has any food allergies or is on a specific diet. We will be making gingerbread houses/decorating gingerbread cookies in the next couple of weeks. I do not allow students to eat these at school but would like to know of any special conditions just to be safe.
Book fair: The Scholastic book fair is coming to our school this weekend December 3-5 at the Parish hall. The book fair will be on Friday 12/3 (12:30-3 pm), Saturday 12/4 (4-7:30pm) and Sunday 12/5 (8-2; 4-7:30). Kelly has sent out an email this past weekend with information about volunteering at the event.

Christmas program: This year, the Kindergarten class will be singing “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer”. I have posted a youtube video of the song with lyrics at the end this post. Please practice with your child.


MATH: Review or complete the math sheet your child is bringing home daily.

Bring in items from home that begin with the letter Ii (short sound).

READING: Don’t forget to mark the November Reading Calendar that is being sent home today. Please turn it in on Wednesday. Please read with your child for 10 minutes or let your child read to you.
