Friday's spirit day, is PJ day. Please have your child bring a blanket, pillow and a favorite snack that they would like to add to our class "Grinch Mix" Friday. Examples are: popped popcorn, pretzels, M&M's, chips, marshmallows, etc. Please keep in mind that we do have a peanut allergy in our classroom. We will enjoy our snack, while watching the Grinch movie. It has a rating of PG, so I will need permission for your child to watch it. Please send an email granting your child permission.

Many kiddos have ran out of these times and I have had many students borrowing supplies the last few weeks, which I am happy to do. I also know how they like to be "owners" of these times and they don't always like having to borrow. Thanks in advance.
Coming Up this Week

Reading- We did a unit study on the Grinch. The skills we focused on were: Theme, Character traits, and Problem/Solution.
