Mrs. Lamparter's Class
December 5, 2014
I'm sure you've heard of our Elf, Alex, that has come to our classroom. The kids named him and are SO excited to see where he hides each day. Of course, he reports back to Santa so we are really focusing on making "good" choices.
Mark your calendars for our annual Holiday program on Thursday, December 18th at 9:00 a.m. We will be performing "Twas the Night Before Christmas." I have costumes for our class. The boys will be Santa and his reindeer and the girls will be carolers.
Be sure and check out my webpage for our new photo album "Happy Thanksgiving!"

- Your child may have forgotten something....
The kids have had two weeks to pick up their lost and found clothes. There are still over 100 items left! They don't recognize their stuff. Parents are invited to come and look for lost jackets, sweaters, shirts, etc. We will donate unclaimed clothing before winter break. Please write your child's name in all of his/her jackets!
