Happy Thanksgiving!

As I reflect upon this season, I am reminded of the multitude of blessings in my life. Your children are right at the top of my list! Thank you for sharing your precious blessing with me!

Gingerbread Exchange

Just a reminder that all decorated gingerbread men are due this Tuesday. I am still looking for a couple of more volunteers to help mail our packages. You will be responsible for taking a few packages to the post office and providing the required postage. Let me know if you can help out!

Cancer Never Sleeps

Relay for Life is sponsoring a grade level contest to raise money for the American Cancer Society. This Monday-Wednesday, students will be able to purchase stars for $1.00. The grade level with the most stars wins a pajama party on Friday! See flyer on our blog for more information.

Thanksgiving Lunch

Our class will enjoy Thanksgiving lunch in the cafeteria on Thursday at 11:32. In order to accommodate all classes, we will have sack lunches in our classroom Tuesday and Wednesday. Please plan accordingly!

Spelling Bee

We will have our classroom spelling bee this Friday. The winner will participate in the grade level contest (after break). Words to study were sent home last week.

Hour of Code

Students will participate in the Hour of Code during STEM class the week of December 8th. Parent volunteers are needed! If you are able to help out on your child's STEM lesson, please contact Mrs. S at joannah.shoushtarian@cobbk12.org.

OAS

Letters explaining the OAS site were sent home last week. This site has great practice for the Georgia Milestone. Please keep this information in a safe place! It's never too early to start practicing!

Spelling

Please make sure you are reviewing your child's weekly spelling list. Many students are not showing evidence of practice!
