Lots of info!! PLEASE READ!! 01/21/2015
Room 4 needs your help!
The cabinets and bins and bookshelves all need to be gone through and organized!
We finally heard from STAR that our classroom will not be used Mondays and Fridays afternoons so those will be our designated organizing days. This is why this project has taken so long to get going because we never really knew when the room would be empty.
If you are interested in heading up this project or helping out, please let me know!
Gala News for Room 4!! IMPORTANT!!!
Our Annual Gala is fast approaching and you know what that means? The competition is on for who can build the best Grade Basket! The basket that goes for the most money at the Live Auction on March 21, 2015 will win a Pizza & Ice Cream Party!
DOES ANYONE WANT TO HEAD THIS UP!?! Please let me know!!
To get started we have to come up with a great anchor item or two. For example, you reply, “ Hey, I have a vacation home in Palm Springs that I could donate for 2 nights”. Great! We have a theme. "Dessert Delight!” Don’t laugh, the names will be better by that night, I promise. We then throw out the idea to the whole class….maybe suggest some nice sunglasses, a gift card to Las Casuelas, tickets to the PS Tram and presto, we have a basket. Basically, after we get feedback from all of you, we’ll start to piece together the donations and create a basket.
Some ideas from the past years are as follows: Lakers Mania, The Ultimate Staycation (local luxuries), All Star (baseball theme) and Pop Rock (tickets to concerts & cosmetics).
Please get back to me if you you want to be in charge of this fun project!
And if any of you have anything we can start with or ideas for a theme. A box will be left in the classroom or can coordinate a pick-up with you once we get started. We must fill out and attach forms to the items once they start coming in. Here is a link to the donation form:
Please write "For Kindergarten Basket" somewhere on the donation form before you turn in your item. Very important: Please don’t turn in anything w/out a form!
This is one of the most exciting, biggest DEALS of the night so let’s WIN this and make loads of money for our kids!
100 day project!!
It is due Feb. 2 so best to start now! It might make it a bit easier if everyday you child finds 20 pictures for their project. You know...space it out a bit:)
Helping out in our class!
Ms. Sally needs helpers on Monday mornings to help organize and go through homework! She has had no help the last couple of weeks so if you can it would be greatly appreciated!!
We are also going to have fun crafts to do and more field trips so sign ups for those will follow!
Reading to our class!
There will also be fun days to have little classroom parties! Valentine's, St. patrick's...so if you would like to lead up one of these let me know!!
Ways to make money for our school
We earned almost $800 in Amazon donations just since October when parents started at this link. That's the easiest way to earn free money for our school. (The Amazon Smile program gives us a smaller donation percentage so while we appreciate your help, it's better to use the above link by creating a short cut to it or following the link from fowhe.org.)
