Week in Review

Happy Holidays! We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. Before break began students completed their presentations and participated in some fun team building activities. Now, they are hard at work learning to identify nonfiction text features, writing informative pieces, and finishing our study of the Mayans.


Our Gingerbread House project is close at hand! Thank you to those that have donated cube-shaped tissue boxes and unwanted food items. We will be continuing to collect those through December 11. Please remember to only send food items that do NOT contain nuts or are not produced in a place containing nuts.


Our house participates in a voluntary gift exchange as part of our holiday celebration. If students would like to participate, they should bring a wrapped gift that is $3 or less to school by December 18. Please address it to a boy if your child is a boy or to a girl if your child is a girl. Again, this is a completely optional activity.
