News from this week
Thank you so much to all the parents who came to our holiday party today! The kids had a lot of fun making an ornament and card and eating the delicious food. A special thanks to our room moms, Leanne Gotvald and Laurie Jay, for organizing all the activities and food!
I also wanted to thank everyone for the wonderful gifts I received from the students! I'm very appreciative of everything, but I am most thankful for all of your wonderful children. I love teaching and being with them each and every day!
The students in my Language Arts class did a wonderful job working on their book club projects and I want to share their hard work. You can go to the following link to see their awesome projects:
The Six Flags reading log was sent home last Friday. This reading log is to be used for the next 3 weeks. It is due on the day we return from winter break. Every child who turns in his/her reading log will receive a free ticket to Six Flags good for the summer months. If you misplaced the reading log, please visit the link below:
I hope everyone has a safe and wonderful winter break! I will see your children next year.
