December 9 - 13

A big thanks to Charles and Chloe’s mom for taking the children to lunch while I enjoyed Teacher Treat Day in the library!!!

Please remember to send in $5 cash for the Christmas party scheduled for Thursday, December 19 from 1:30-2:15.  The children may also wear green that day and we will watch the movie How The Grinch Stole Christmas before our party.

Friday, December 13, the children may wear their pajamas to school and we will
 watch The Polar Express.  We will have a sweet treat to enjoy during the movie!

Our copier machines at school were not cooperating today so I didn't send home any reading homework or the Family Ties sheet for reading.  Hopefully these will both come home tomorrow!
