Winter Party

Our Winter party is TOMORROW! :) It will be held with our entire grade level. We will combine with another class and will have different stations in different classrooms. We will have a candy cane craft station, a movie/snack station, and a Christmas bingo game station. If you would like, please send snacks for our students to enjoy when they are in the snack station. These need to be ones that they can place in a paper bag when it is time to rotate to the next station so they need to be easy to transport.

Please send these in on Monday, December 21st if possible so we can have an idea of what we are going to have.

Here are some examples:

Fruit Snacks





Pudding Cups

Jello Cups

Applesauce Cups

Juice Boxes


Individual Packs are GREAT!

We have 19 Students in class, any leftover snacks will be saved for daily snack.


Thank you!

Smarty Ants

If your child has a computer or tablet with internet access a great way to help the learn is by putting them on Smarty Ants at home! It is a free app. that can be downloaded and they can use their account from school. If you would like more information on how to do this please let me know.

Spelling List:

We will NOT have a spelling test this week, as we are only here for two days. Please go ahead and start practicing tricky words for the next weeks if you have a chance! Starting after Christmas there will be rewards for perfect spellers.
