Monday Memo

December 7, 2015


Thanks to the Sunshine Committee for a wonderful Holiday Party and thanks to Danielle for hosting the party at her house this year. It was great to be able to spend time together on Friday. This week starts the "12 Day Celebration of Giving." Don't forgot to fill out your tickets when you participate.

Today is an Early Release day. We will be working with Mark Bower again today. Please enjoy an extended lunch time and plan to meet in the library at 12:45 to begin our afternoon. We will finish up by 3:30. Special Area teachers - Jennifer will be in contact with you about your afternoon.

We will have our first safety drill next Tuesday, December 14. Please take some time this week to review the safety procedures on the orange cards. Please let me know if you don't have/can't find your orange card. Detail on the drill will be in next week's "Monday Memo."

Here are some pictures from the last week. (Thanks to Julia for the assembly pictures)...
