PTA Movie Night

Come join the fun this Friday for a night out at the movies! Polar Express will be the movie and everyone is welcome to come in his/her pajamas. PTA will be selling goodies. A pre-order pizza form will be coming home this week for those interested in purchasing dinner.

Toy Drive

From now until December 18th there is a school-wide toy drive going on. If you'd like to participate, please send in a new, unwrapped toy for your child to drop into one of the boxes in the atrium.

Lost and Found

With the cooler temperatures setting in more students are coming to school with sweatshirts and jackets. You would be AMAZED how many end up in the school's lost and found. The best thing to do is put your child name on the tag so the item has a better chance of making it back to our class. If you know your child is missing something have them check the lost and found.

Volunteering at the School

If you would like to be a volunteer for the upcoming year please fill out the form found in this link. If you have filled this out in the past and your volunteer card has not expired, you do not need to fill another one out.

Mystery Readers

Kids LOVE being read to! Every other Friday we will host a Mystery Reader. Mystery Readers can be parents, grandparents, siblings, or other family members. This will be a 10-15 minute time block. You can bring in your favorite children's book….fiction, non-fiction, poetry, etc. If you're not sure what to bring, I can find a book for you, or you can read a chapter from our read aloud book. If you are interested in signing up for a Mystery Reader date, just send me a quick message.

I know this is gross, however....

In order to keep our building as germ free as possible it is important that you understand that children must be diarrhea free, vomit free, and fever free (without fever reducing medication) for 24 hours before they can return to school.
