Weekly News: November 15-18


There is no school on Monday, November 14th due to parent conferences. I hope you are enjoying the long 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. Please remember that because we only have so much time per conference, I'd like to politely ask that you arrive on time so we can make the most of our time together. If possible, please make other arrangements for your children, as parent conferences are for parents and teachers only. Thank you!

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

Our kindergarten classes will be having a combined Thanksgiving Feast this Friday, November 18th. We are looking forward to a great, big Thanksgiving celebration together! Thank you for signing up to donate items on ParentSquare. 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 this day. 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 next 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!

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