Miss Jamie's Class News

Is it November already?

We are ROCKING the WALK !!!!!

Right now our classroom is in the LEAD for total fundraising for the Walk-a-thon!!! Let's keep driving and win one of the prizes for our kids. They'll get to pick a field trip to the California Pizza Kitchen or the L.A. Zoo if we stay on top!

Also...we are so close to 100% participation. Whether its $5 or $250 your child can raise - WE ARE A TEAM!!! And you know your kids want to SLIME THE PRINCIPAL. Plus each teacher has arranged a reward for their class if they hit 100% participation. Miss Jamie's lined up a special yoga session to be held at our South Campus gym. Go, Team Jamie, Go!

... and see you at the track to cheer them on this coming Thursday, Nov 21! Our class is slated for Heat #3, so they'll be burning up the laps from 10:45am-11:15 am!

Want to check out our soon-to-be new classroom at the South Campus! Join us this Saturday for the Work Party!

Work Party #1 to prep for the K/1 move to the Assistance League campus is this Saturday, November 16, 2013. Arrive at the AL anytime between the hours of 9:00am and 3:00pm and check in with Maureen or Grettel to find out where you're needed. All parents will be working together to prepare all parts of the AL campus and we need all hands on deck! We'll be:


  • Prepping and painting rooms
  • Moving & Assembling furniture


OK to bring the kids. They can take a role in readying the school, and when they've had enough of that, child care will be provided free of charge.


Can't make it on Saturday? Feel free to come anytime during school hours (check in with the front desk staff for guidance about what needs to be done) to lend a hand.

Plus, stay tuned for more ways we can help Miss Jamie in the coming weeks...


The official move date is not set, but we want to be ready to hit the ground running and get as much done ahead of time as possible!

BIG BIG THANKS TO ALL OUR VOLUNTEERS!!!

We did it and we're done for the year! We had a great showing at swift drop-off and lunch helper shifts during our two week stint. Thank you to all who stepped up to fill these essential roles!


More opportunities to engage with our school community and be of service, especially for those who often aren't available during the day, are coming. Keep an eye out!

**A message about Classroom Birthday Celebrations**

Birthday (and half-birthday) celebrations at CWCSL are held on Friday mornings at snack time. Parents are welcome to bring in a healthy snack (no dairy/no sugar/ no nuts) and join us for a special snack time inside the classroom. This occurs at 9:15-9:35. Please email Ms. Jamie the Monday before if you are interested in participating.


...who is the next Mystery Reader? Is it you???

The kids are hyper-buzzed with excitement each Friday as they try to guess who the Mystery Reader will be. And you won't find a more rapt audience than the Banana Lemon Meringue Pies!!! Sign up on Shutterfly or email our own fabulous Kate for your chance to see these kids faces when you walk in the door!
