Happy Veteran's Day

Sadly I missed the Veteran's Day assembly on Friday due to being out of town. Mrs. Hitchner, our guest teacher, took some pictures though. I heard that your kids did great and were a lot of fun to watch. I also asked Mrs. Hitchner have the kids write letters to veterans. I will be getting these ready to mail through an organization called Operation Gratitude. I took some pictures of a few of the letters to share with you. They are very sweet.

Sharing This Week!

Thanks for helping your kids with the Guessing Game sharing last week. This week we are back to a "normal" sharing time. Monday kids can choose to share one day this week if they would like to. I always tell kids they can share something from home or even a story about something that happened. Sharing is a great time for kids to learn how to speak in front of the class, listen to one another, and ask appropriate questions. So thanks for helping your child remember their sharing day. There is lots of great learning taking place as kids get to share a little about themselves with their friends.
