Weekly News: November 16-20

News:

No school for students on Monday! I hope you enjoy the three day weekend with your families!

Parent Conferences are this week (Monday-Thursday). Thank you for signing up on Parent Square for a conference.  I am looking forward to meeting with all of you to discuss your child's growth in the classroom.

Thank you very much for donating to our Thanksgiving Food Box! What a wonderful way to give during this holiday season :) 

We are having a Kindergarten Thanksgiving Feast on Friday! The kids will be eating turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, corn bread, cranberries, friendship fruit salad, and of course, homemade pumpkin pie! We are looking forward to making a lot of our items in class together this week. Don't forget to bring your fruit for our friendship fruit salad on Friday! 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. Each child will get to add his or her own fruit to our fruit salad! 

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 11:30 for set up.  The feast will begin at 12:00. We need need LOTS of help for set up and tear down! Thank you in advance!

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". We will have "auditions" this week and each student will have a very special role in our play. Later this week, we will be sending home lyrics and CDs so you can start practicing over break! More information on this fun event to come. Have fun singing!
