Week 16 - Nutcracker Trip Friday
News This Week
Scholastic Forms: Please return Scholastic Release Forms so that our class photos can be used. I can send another one if you need it. Thanks to those that have already returned forms!
Tuesday: Tomorrow we will be practicing our rotations for a day. Students will do the same work but will visit Mrs. Blackmon and Mrs. Bowen. We did a quick run-through today to get organized.
Field Trip: Our trip is Friday. We will leave at 10:30 and return at 12:45. Snack will be in the morning. Students need to bring sack lunches, as no one requested a cafeteria lunch.
Tests: Due to the field trip, we will try to take our tests Thursday this week.
Holiday: Please send in $5.00 to help with the cost of keepsakes, food, and activities for the holiday party. Our party will be on PJ day, Thursday the 17th, starting in the morning with a breakfast.
