I hope you have a wonderful weekend, please let me know if there is anything I can do for you or your child.

A Note from Mrs. Peacock

Happy Friday! I love seeing the holiday cheer spread throughout the building and how much the students enjoy it. Next week will be very busy with activities so expect lots of things coming home! If you plan on visiting a classroom next week, we ask that you check with your student's teacher first. Also, please make sure you have an approved background check on file.

As a reminder - we will go outside so long as the temperature is 20* and above. Please send your student with a warm jacket, gloves and hat. If you need assistance with any of these items, please don't hesitate to contact me (

Have a great weekend!

Literacy Corner with Mrs. H. Lawson

Tips on Supporting Reading during the Holiday Season

Creating opportunities for reading at every corner is a great way to nurture a joy of

reading. Here are some tips on supporting literacy at home and in the community during

the holiday season:

At Home:

  • Make holiday or winter reading a tradition. Read from the same book each year,

or give a new holiday book each year.

  • Make at least one gift a book, even if it didn’t make the wish list.
  • Have your children read holiday cards aloud.
  • Make homemade holiday cards with your children and have them write

personalized messages in each card.

  • If you enjoy making holiday treats, then have your children read the recipes while

you bake together.

  • Write your own winter books with your children and read them aloud to the


In the Community:

  • Donate used or new books to local literacy programs and charities.
  • Make a gift donation to help support literacy programs in your area.
  • Sign up to volunteer. Become a reading tutor as your new year’s resolution!
  • Participate in local literacy events at libraries and with local charities.
