Christmas Performance

We are preparing for our Christmas performance on Tuesday December 11th.

We follow the completing of the piano recital which starts at 5:30.

Students need to arrive at the Covington Campus by 5:45. Students need to report to the library. The library is located in the second building.

Students are to wear Christmas Attire.

Sugar Cookies

On Tuesday December 18th we will be reading and doing activities with the book The Gingerbread Man.

I would love for the students to decorate cookies that day. Most children do not like gingerbread so I am looking for someone who would be willing to make some gingerbread shaped sugar cookies for the students.

We will also need items such as icing, mini m&m's, sixlets, chocolate chips, etc.

If you can pick up one of these items for us please let me know.

Pizza Party

We will also be doing a book study on The Polar Express starting on Monday. On Wednesday December 19th I am going to buy pizza for the students and we will be watching The Polar Express. One of the moms in Mrs. Luther's class has offered to make all the students cupcakes that day for a special treat.

Letters to Santa

For writers workshop this week the students have been writing letters to Santa. Many of them had lots of wants (of course), but I also had them write one question to Santa. This morning, I was told that in collaboration with our high school, the 9th-12th grade students will be taking our Santa letters and writing the students a response. The letters will be delivered to the students before they leave for Christmas break. I am going to photo copy the student's letters to Santa and send in your child's FISH folder so that you will have a copy.

I can only imagine the looks on their faces when they see that Santa has written them a letter. -PRICELESS
