News for the week of December 15th

Holiday/ Giving Theme

This week we will introduce a "Holiday/ Giving" Theme! We will be working hard at finishing up a special gift that will be sent home during winter break. Our "Gingerbread Exchange" packages are still arriving daily! We have a few left to open to complete our maps this week. Students will take home the gift they created this Thursday. This Thursday is also our holiday party (rescheduled- see below). We will make a holiday craft, play holiday games, and sing songs.

Rescheduled Holiday Party

We had to unexpectedly reschedule our holiday party for this Thursday, December 18th. Sorry for the inconvenience! I sent home reminder slips for volunteer items on Friday. Please let me know if the party date change means you cannot send in the item you signed up for. Also, if you signed up to be a classroom helper, please let me know if you can come in on Thursday. If not, we will arrange for a different time for you to visit.

Parent/Craft Night

*Please mark your calendars for a special parent/child craft night in February. The craft night will be held on Tuesday, February 10th at the Elementary School cafeteria from 6:00- 7:00pm. All three 4K classes will be combined for this fun event. We will be making a valentine craft and singing a few songs :) We thought it would be nice to have a get together in February when life is a little less hectic than around the holidays. More information to come about this fun event!

Traveling Backpacks

* In January we will be starting our "Traveling Backpack" program for families that sign up. There will be more information to come on these neat bags filled with wonderful learning activities to do at home with your child. Planning ahead, we are looking for one person per class ( 1 for my a.m. class and 1 for my p.m. class) to volunteer every Tuesday for approximately 30 minutes. This person would go through the traveling backpacks and check in the items to get them ready to send out with the next group of students. Please contact Miss Cleasby if you are or know anyone who might be interested.

Reminders

* Our Holiday Party will be rescheduled for this Thursday, December 18th. Please let me know if you signed up to volunteer and cannot now due to the schedule change.


*There is NO SCHOOL on Tuesday, December 23rd for 4K due to 11:00am elementary school release.
