Mrs. Beatty's 3rd grade class

It's December!

Mrs. Beatty's gift

We only have 10 days of school left in 2015

If you are participating in the group gift please start to turn in your gift in a sealed envelope. You can contribute via cash/check or paypal. Please send a sealed envelope with your child with Mrs. Wheeler on it and have them turn it into Mrs. Beatty. If you prefer to deliver to me contact me and I can give you my address or feel free to paypal me at

Remember this isn't mandatory. There is no particular amount that you must give as this is not meant to be a financial hardship! You can give whatever you are comfortable with. We know many of you have more than one child as do we and anything you give is appreciated. If you can just let us know if you are interested in doing this as we know some of you may have already gotten her something. As a class we are asked to also take care of another staff member who doesn't have a "classroom" Lucky us-we get to spoil Mrs. Jones!

I have already purchased monogrammed scarves for both of them and will fill their basket with other goodies such as gift cards. If you prefer to simply donate a gift card to add to the basket feel free. I have attached their "Favorites" below. I would like to have all those who are contributing to let me know by December 14th.

Again-if you could just reply and let us know if you are interested in this.

Classroom gift exchange

Our holiday party will be on December 18th. In the spirit of giving we would love to do a book exchange. Please bring wrapped new/gently loved book for the kids to exchange. They love to do this every year and I hope all will participate. I know that Half Price books has a great selection too. We welcome you to come, help and enjoy this last day with your child. We will have a craft, photo corner and snacks on hand during the party. Please join us!

January & February Parent Volunteers needed

Mrs. Beatty will be needing parent readers for the classroom again after the holiday so I thought I would get a head start on our sign up so you have plenty of time to plan and add it to your calendar. Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:30-12:00 would be a huge help to our teacher. The parent readers will be pulling one student or small groups to help them with fluency and comprehension. Click on the link below to sign up starting after Thanksgiving break! Let's help develop some awesome readers!
