~December Memo for Staff~

What is this?!

This memo is to inform staff only of the happenings in December! Let's have some fun as we prepare for winter break!


We have SO much happening in December. You will still receive my weekly memo, but this is just for us and all based on having a good time. More importantly, I want you to have some fun with me during my favorite time of the year!

Deck the Halls....

Deck the halls with denim and jeans...fa la la la la la la la la....


Welcome to Jean-cember! Got Christmas shirts and accessories? Rock 'em all month if you'd like. You know I will!

Door Decorating Contest!

We are doing a school-wide Christmas door decorating contest. Go ahead and start if you are in the spirit! We will be judging Friday, December 6. Judging details will be shared. Have fun with this! ALL are invited to participate as long as you have a door!

Mission # 1

I need your help! Send me a Christmas bitmoji of yourself. You can email or text it! I need it by the end of day on Monday! Participants will be entered into a raffle for a Grinch tumbler cup! An example of mine is on the right. Gooooooood luck!

Baby, It's Cold Outside

Tuesday, December 3 is calling for a high of 63 degrees! Brrrr! Stop by the resource room in the media center for a warm treat!

12 Days of Christmas

Our 12 Days of Christmas tradition will begin on December 5! Stay tuned for information from Nicola!

Friendly Competition

We are going to have some FUN this week and participate in a little game. But you aren't on teams! Say what?! Yes, you read this right! I am going to put a little something in your mailboxes Tuesday afternoon. Watch for an email from me after school on Tuesday explaining the rules. Then, let the fun begin~it lasts until Friday!

Do You Hear What I Hear?

Make sure you listen to the announcements daily~there might be a little something in there in which you or a class could win a prize!

Staff Christmas Party

There are TWO sign up sheets on the whiteboard. One is an RSVP to the party; the other is a sign up sheet for something to bring. See invitation below!


Bring a white elephant gift if you would like to participate!
