What's Coming up?
Parents - Due to the amount of people that will be joining us on Wednesday, please consider not bringing siblings.
December 16th (Wednesday)- 1:00 Publishing Party-In writing we have been working on "How To" books and that authors can be teachers. Each child will pick their favorite book they have written to share with each other on Wednesday the 16th at the "Publishing Party." It is a party in the sense that we celebrate everyone as writers. We had our first celebration in October. It was such a special time and I wanted you as parents to get to participate as well. Please email me if you are planning on joining us during this time. I need to plan for enough seating.
December 16th (Wednesday)- 1:30 Class Christmas Party - The class party will follow our publishing party. I hope having them on the same day will be helpful with planning time off from work. Thank you for using the signup genius to help with providing items for the party. Please send all items to school on Monday so room moms can plan accordingly.
