WINTER BREAK -- DECEMBER 21 - JANUARY 1
SCHOOL RESUMES MONDAY, JANUARY 4
PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE by MONICA ARBOW
Dear Nancy Ryles,
As we approach winter break, I would like to thank all of you for supporting your children, your teachers, your school and your community through the most eventful 2020 we could have imagined.
I am humbled by the collaboration and support from our Nancy Ryles community during this season of giving. As a result of our generous community partnerships, we were able to provide 48 families (a total of 136 children) with holiday support. What a wonderful feeling it is to help each other during times of need.
I hope you and your family find a new way of celebrating the holidays this winter and are reminded of the things in your lives that are most important, which is each other, whether in memory, in person, or virtually. Keep hope alive; a new year is coming.
My best wishes to all of you this holiday season!
Wonder Wednesday - December is about STEM on Wonder Wednesday. We have some fun STEM crafts coming out to entertain you over the break. Check out this quick video for some more details and don’t forget to share the link to Wonder Wednesday with your student!

This month, Safe Routes to School invites you to go on a snowflake hunt! We are asking Nancy Ryles families to display a snowflake in a window facing the street and walk around their neighborhood checking out all the snow! Below is a tutorial link to making a paper snowflake. Hopefully this will provide a fun activity and a little encouragement to go outside and walk and roll. Be sure to track your miles and record them on your Marathon Kids account!

Ms. Osborne and Mr. Chung gave away a LOT of maker kits this week! Get those creative juices flowing have fun building something over break. We'd love to see what you come up with! Please upload a photo of your creation to the Maker Kit photo upload page and we'll randomly select a few and show them off during our January Assembly! Happy Making!
If you did not pick up a Maker Kit, you can still join in on the fun! Find random things around your home and create something! (Item ideas: paper towel/toilet paper tubes, string, fabric scraps, bottle caps, corks, pipe cleaners, popsicle sticks or wood scraps, cardboard, etc. You can use glue, tape, staples or whatever to connect things together.)
