Weekly News: November 13-16


News:

I hope everyone had a nice three-day weekend and enjoyed the time off with your family.

Even with the rain, the Fall Festival was a huge hit! It was so fun seeing all of you there. Thank you to the MANY parents for the MANY hours of work you put in!! 

Parent conferences are THIS week! I look forward to meeting with you!

We are having a Kindergarten Thanksgiving Feast on Friday! The kids will be eating turkey, carrots, corn bread, friendship fruit salad, and of course, homemade pumpkin pie! Some of these items, like the corn bread and pie, will be made in class a few days prior to the feast. Thank you for signing up to bring items - please check the classroom clipboard to see what day we will be needing particular items for cooking! Also - we will be making a friendship fruit salad on Friday and each student will get to add their own fruit! Please send a piece of fruit to school with your child on Friday. An apple, pear, banana, or small bag of strawberries or grapes are good examples.

If you would like to come help set up and make this a wonderful Thanksgiving Feast for our kids, you are welcome to join us on Friday at 11:00. Thank you in advance for ALL of your help! :) 

Our kindergarten classes are doing a Christmas play this year! I'm sure you have heard all about it! We will be putting on "The Tale of the Gingerbread Man" on Thursday, December 20th in the morning. Each student will have a special role in our play. This week, I will be sending home lyrics and CDs so you can start practicing over break! Have fun!

I will be sending home November - December Scholastic Book Orders on Tuesday. Click on the Scholastic link to order. Book Orders will be due Friday, the 16th. They will be here PERFECT time for Christmas :) 

NO SCHOOL ALL OF NEXT WEEK! Enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday with your families!


What Are We Learning This Week?:
