Thoughts and Thanks from Mrs. C
Winter Break News and Thank You's
I try every year to write thank you notes for each gift I receive. It means so much to me that you thought about me and showered me with treats for my birthday and Christmas.
I live in fear that I'm going to forget someone or that a gift gets lost and not found until January!!
This year I'm writing those notes but I'm also sending out this page. I'm hoping to convey my thoughts and feelings (plus give you pictures) of the fun I've had this week with your children.
I hope your winter break is restful and peaceful. I hope you get to spend time with your families and enjoy every minute of it. I plan on doing that plus sneaking off to read in a quiet corner from time to time...
One more thing-
Our friend Jessica and her family are moving and we are so sad for us but excited for their adventure in a new country! We are going to miss Jessica's bright smile and awesome art.
The gift cards were an unexpected treat and if you were a part of that, I thank you from the bottom of my heart! My other gifts were just as amazing!
Our Class Party
It was great to see so many adult faces in the room. Thank you for coming! If you couldn't make it, lucky for you that I took pictures!
Special thanks go to Mike and Angie for all of their hard work behind the scenes to keep things running. The party was a success!
The first day back is Monday, January 7th! We are going to start working as soon as the bell rings so make sure breakfast, snack, and a good night's sleep have been taken care of.
What We'll Be Learning...
Science- We will be studying ROCKS!!! (My favorite unit.)
