Cookies and Crafts

The office would like to make sure that our kids go home with a Christmas memory this year. We are setting up a Cookies and Crafts area on the stage next Monday-Wednesday. There will be several stations set up for students to make a Christmas craft or ornament. There will be a sign up sheet in the workroom this week. There will be a lot going on during EQT week, but please take a small break and come let your kids make a memory this holiday season!

Box Top Winners

Winners this week are Ms. Brown and Mrs. Pettaway!



In the next few weeks, I will complete observations on all classes. After, I will share a link to a Google Doc that I have created for each of you. Each time that I complete an observation the form will populate with the new information.
