Mrs. Robinson's 1-2 Multiage

For the week of September 26, 2016

Thanks for all the positive thoughts and prayers. My week was a little crazy, but all is well and life will go on!!! I'm excited to get back to school!

On Monday, September 26th, I will not be needing parent volunteers for the morning. It just so happens that it is testing day in the life of this classroom. Since I was gone last week, we are going to take it slow and easy for the morning. I'd love to have you back on Wednesday though! Thanks so much!

PICTURE DAY!!

Individual school pictures will be taken this Wednesday, September 28th!! Your child's pictures WILL be taken even if you choose not to pay for them...so bring your smiles!!!

BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION

I hope you are familiar with those cute little Box Tops for Education that you find on products at the grocery store. I'm pretty sure each is worth ten cents to a school...so it can add up fast!
Because of this, Inkom is having a Box Tops Contest. I'm not sure if it started last week or is starting fresh this week. This contest will run through October 24th. The contest will be the upper grades vs. the lower grades as to who brings in the most Box Tops!!!
The winning 'team' will receive a root beer float party, which is always fun! So start calling everyone you know who is 'saving' these and have your child bring them to school!!!
