Dear Parents,


You and your family are invited to join us for PJs with Santa this Thursday night at 5:30 p.m. There will be breakfast tacos and drinks for sale, live and silent auctions, and plenty of activities for children. The kindergarten PTO program will then take place at 7:00 p.m. This is always one of Mitchell’s biggest nights of the year.


Students can also wear their pajamas to school this Thursday. Make sure that pajama bottoms are secure at the waist and that tops have sleeves and reach down past the waist.


Student Council is hosting its first Parents Night Out this Friday night from 6:30 to 9:30. This event is only for current Mitchell students. A flyer went home in Tuesday folders last week.


Men interested in serving as a Watch D.O.G. need to complete the Bryan ISD volunteer form and be approved prior to their first day. The online volunteer form can be found at http://tinyurl.com/prklgum. Our Watch D.O.G.S. pizza dinner for fathers, father figures, and students will be held on December 15 at 6:30 p.m. in the cafeteria. I will share information about the program and offer the first chance to sign up for days that night. There will be other opportunities to select a day to volunteer for men who can’t make it on the 15th. Please return sign up forms for the pizza dinner to the office by Friday, December 11 so that we can ensure that we have enough pizza and drinks. Information about the national program can be found at http://www.fathers.com/watchdogs/allaboutwatchdogs/.


We now have a Giving Tree on one of the walls in the Kinder Corner. Please stop by, pull off a leaf, and fill a classroom’s need.

Please see the next page for a calendar of upcoming events. I hope to see you at PJs with Santa this Thursday night.


Sincerely,


John Rokenbrod
