FAREWELL

I'm sad to announce we have said farewell to another of our 706 little family. Mercedez has moved to Camarena and we wish her all the best! We will all miss her dearly.

Holiday Celebration

Our class will be having a gift exchange this Friday, December 19th. The gift should be NO MORE than $5.00 and it MUST be something students can use in class (i.e. pencils, erasers, markers, etc). Boys should bring items for boys and girls for girls. Please only put who the gift is FROM, not who it is TO (that will be determined through the game we play). You are more than welcome to join us at 12:45 for our festive games. Please feel free to contact me directly if you don't wish to participate in gift exchange. In addition, we will be watching Because of Winn Dixie in the morning as we will have finished the book. Thank you!

HOLIDAY GRAMS

Send holiday cheer to your child or have your child send some to their friends for $2 or a 'special secret' gram for $5. Holiday grams will be sold before and after school in the PTA room Monday-Thursday and delivered on Friday.
