Isbell Elementary

Loving Every Minute of Learning

Dodson’s Dish

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving Break. It sure was a wet one, but it was great to spend time with family and friends. We have a lot happening over the next couple of weeks. Please make sure you mark your calendar for any of the following dates.

Winter Parties

Students will be having gingerbread cookies and milk. The ingredients in the cookies are below. If your child will not be able to eat the snack, please let your classroom teacher know as soon as possible. You can provide them with an alternate snack. All parties will begin at 1:45 and end at 2:30. The 2:30 ending time allows teachers a chance to prepare students to go home the correct way. Many parents change transportation this day. Please make sure you make these arrangements by 1:15. Do not forget to communicate with the daycare if you will be taking your child home this day.

Please use the link below if you plan on attending the party. The office staff will begin printing badges on the 15th. They will be sent home to you on the 16th. If you have any questions please contact Melanie Glover

WINTER PARTY RSVP LINK get your badges early to avoid the line, parties will begin at 1:45pm

Artwork Wanted

! If you love to draw and paint, then this project is for you!!! The Isbell Library is looking for amazing artwork to help decorate the library walls!! If you would like your artwork featured in the Isbell Library, please read the guidelines below:

Library Art Guidelines:

· All artwork must have a “reading theme”. For example: it could be the cover of your favorite book or just a picture that shows that reading can take you places. Get creativity!

· The artwork needs to be on a 16 x 20 sized canvas. You can

purchase the canvas at any local art store (Hobby Lobby, Michaels etc.).

· There is no deadline for this project, we will display the artwork as they come in!
