Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Ready for a quick week? It's sometimes more exhausting with the early release and parent-teacher conferences than a regular week... you will all be ready for a well deserved Thanksgiving Break by the middle of the week.

Monday is a busy morning- everyone except for grade 1 will be in the gym for 9:00 for our first Prayer Service. Mrs. Petty has planned a Prayer for Peace program. I know it will be fantastic. Please remind students that we still need to reverent as we are in church even though we will be in the gym. It should last 30-40 minutes.

I will be at the Pilgrim Program in grade 1, we have Supt. Perda and Fr. Daly joining us.

There will be no recess on these two early release days, unless you do a morning snack/recess break within your own classroom.

MAP GROWTH PROFILE REPORTS FOR PARENTS- I will attempt to get all of your profile reports printed on Monday morning so you will have them for conferences.. I can give you a quick over view so you can give to parents....

SECRET SANTA- All staff are invited to participate in our annual Secret Santa fun... forms are in your mailboxes- please fill out and return to Marian before November 28th!

We need to get ready for ADVENT! It's my favorite time of the year- except that it gets busy, busy, busy! I love when we pray together and light the Advent Candles, but this year we have Mass on Monday mornings- open to suggestions!

Our students also love having RUDY- our Elf on the Shelf visit... .I'm open to ideas and people that want to help 'hide RUDY each day.... let's get creative!

It's time to decorate the school too! All help and ideas are welcome! Let's show some Christmas Spirit!
