# Mrs. Lyons' Class Week 11

## October 24 - 29

Twas the week before Halloween....

In the spirt of all things fun, I will be setting aside a portion of the day on friday for "Flash Light Friday" I will be making my famous Witches Brew for the class. We will turn the lights off and will read Halloween themed story books by flashlight for about 10 minutes. Please send a plastic flashlight with your child on Friday for this fun time. The dollar tree is the best place to pick up a \$1 flash light if you do not already have one. Students may bring a small pillow or stuffed animal to cozy up to while reading. We will be doing this on Friday due to a field trip to the pumpkin patch on Halloween.
