Ms. Liz's Weekly Class Update

Week of 3/18/13


Hi Ladies and Gentlemen, it's great to hear from some of you regarding the new look of our newsletter. I figured I needed to step up my "Room Parent" game so I'm glad you like it. Please note, that once we return from Spring break you can expect to receive this as a bi-weekly newsletter, in your email boxes, every Sunday. So if there is something you would like to share with the class, just be sure you email me the information no later than the Friday before the new one is due out. Got that?

Also, I want to quickly give kudos to all the parents that helped out with coffee and muffins for the Coffee Social this past Friday. I heard it went well. A big shout-out to Doug (Gideon's dad), for representing for me as I was unable to be there that day.

Volunteering at CWC Silver Lake

If you volunteer at school, you will need to provide TB test results in the very near future. There is an outbreak in Los Angeles. Please be on the lookout for further instructions about where to get the test for free and by when you'll need it. Also, if you are volunteering, you will be required to sign in and out at the office.
