What's New This Week?

It's Time for Colonial Day!

Colonial Day Trade oral presentations will done in class on Tuesday and Wednesday, December 15th & 16th this week. Students should bring their costume and props to school and plan to change in and out of them here.

Our school-wide Colonial Day is on Thursday, December 17th. Students should wear their costumes, and bring their props, to school that day. For ideas on how to create a Colonial Days costume for your child, please click on the link below:


Colonial Day Donations

Please bring all Colonial Day crafts or games donation items to school as early as possible this week so that we may begin organizing them ahead of time.

Please bring perishable food donation items only on the morning of Colonial Day, Thursday, December 17th, as the school does not have adequate space to store food items needing refrigeration.

For those parents who've volunteered to serve punch and cookies, click on the links below to view the recipes:

If you have any questions any of the Colonial Day donations, please email Mrs. Anderson at the address listed at the bottom of this newsletter. Thank you!

Still Need Volunteers on Colonial Day

We need a few more volunteers to help walk with some of the younger students during the Colonial Day demonstrations from 9:30-10:30. If interested, please contact Mrs. Anderson ASAP. Thanks!
