Holiday Party, December 18th.

We will have our holiday party on Friday, December 18th at 10:30.


  • I can't feed your child at the party if you do not return the RSVP form. Please do so as they were due last week.
  • If you plan to attend (even if you aren't volunteering) go to https://docs.google.com/a/staff.lisd.net/forms/d/1V2SKNo8Q_evis_5uv7z6Rlyxn4360CSNZjNJ3SduLHw/viewform?c=0&w=1 and Melissa Thompson in our office will have your visitor badge preprinted to sped your check in on party day. If you have never checked in, she will not be able to pre print your badge as your Driver's License scan has to be on file.
  • I am planning to have a meat and cheese tray , vegetable tray, some fruit, and a sweet treat for the party. I have tried to touch base with anyone whose child has dietary restrictions to insure there is something for everyone. If I haven't checked with you and you have concerns please let me know.
  • Students will have a silly sock exchange. Boys bring boy socks and girls bring girl socks. Socks should be no more than $5. You are welcome to send them in early.
  • I will need parent volunteers to help make it a success. There was a section on the RSVP to let me know if you could help at the party.
  • I want to say a huge thanks to all the parents who have agreed to help. :)
  • Kindergarten will not perform in a program that day.

Change in Specials

From now on, the kids will no longer split Music and PE on specials days. Coach Ingram and Mrs. Trigg have been very impressed with our Kindergarten group and feel they are ready for this change! :) (Yeah for an AWESOME group of kiddos!)


Please pay attention to our specials days and have your child dressed appropriately on P.E. days -especially SHOES. I list the days in our newsletter, on our website, and on the behavior calendar in your child's folder. Please note that for the remainder of this nine week's on the behavior chart if it says P.E. & Music it will be P.E. only and if it says Music & P.E. it will be just Music. (The first special class listed is the one they will attend all period.)

There is a new AWESOME chart in your child's folder. They can earn sticker for their chart many ways. For example:


  • Return a sight word reader signed by their adult to show that they read the book to their adult. (These are the xeroxed sight word readers we send home most weeks.)
  • Return a homework assignment on time. (Like this past week's Family Tradition artifacts.)
  • Return completed monthly homework.
  • Counting forward to 20, backward to 20, and up to 100.
  • Doing something AWESOME!
When the kids fill up their awesome chart, they will return it to me for a trip to the class coupons for things like Lunch with a Friend, Technology Time, Hat Day, etc. They are really excited!!!!
