Dear LP Families:
I hope you and your families had a nice Thanksgiving holiday. I always appreciate a break from the action, but I tend to like to get back to my routine. It was a great week at LP!
The forecast is beginning to look more like winter. Please remember that we will continue to play outside this winter, as long as the wind chill remains above 20 degrees. I recommend getting into the habit of sending your children to school with boots, hats, and coats.
Have a wonderful weekend - the first weekend of the "Holiday Season." I included a picture of my family (me included) at our daughter's first birthday celebration last weekend. We surely will miss the days when one child has her finger up her nose and the other refuses to look at the camera. I'm sure you can all relate to this beautiful reality!

Recess During the Winter Months
Please see the bullets below for some general reminders regarding outdoor recess during the winter months:
- Decisions about staying inside will be made by the Main Office Staff just prior to the start of the lunch period.
- In the winter, snow pants are encouraged, but not mandatory.
- Boots are required to have full access to the playground during the winter.

Thing about Laurelton-Pardee - Staff/Team support
You might be surprised to know that I used to have a window treatment business.
I would like to meet... Robert DeNiro.
If I could go anywhere in the world I would go back to Italy to see Rome.
My favorite sports team is the New England Patriots.
I keep healthy by trying to eat balanced and trying to exercise.
Last summer I regretted not going away.
When I am not at Laurelton-Pardee I visit family and cook often.
Right now I am reading The Book Thief.
If I had a magic wand, I would end all sickness in the world.
