Polar Express Day Thursday

Thursday we will be joining other grades at RPE for Polar Express Day! Your child may wear pajamas to school that day, if they wish. We will have Polar Express math; we will also read the book and do activities with it, and end our day by making hot chocolate to observe scientific properties of mixtures and solutions.

Our class needs to borrow a large coffee urn or electric tea kettle, if you have one to lend us! Please let me know. I'll be heading out in search of one Wednesday. :)

Holiday Party Friday!!

Our Holiday Party is this Friday, December 19th, from 1:10-2:10. Our amazing room moms have a fun afternoon planned for the Spuri Peppers. I hope that you will be able to join in our festivities, too! See you Friday!!
