Auction Basket

The Sweetheart Auction is coming around and Hali Bodart is organizing our classroom basket theme of "Family Fun Night". So far two families have graciously donated a game and money toward other items. If you are willing and able to send in items that would qualify for a Family Fun Night Basket please send them to school next week or a monetary donation for Hali to purchase things.



Please make sure that you are sending your child with a snack to school each day. I no longer provide a "back up" snack for students. I'm challenging the students to take responsibility to pack their own snack so that they are never without one!

A New Look For Our Classroom!

Over winter break, magic classroom rearranging elves came in and completely changed the flow and set up of our classroom. New tables, more stations, new desk set up and more! Ask your child about the cool new changes!

Ms. Maher's Wish list!

Thank you to all the families who have graciously donated to our classroom. Your contributions are helping our learning each and every day!

Our current needs include:

Fun colored duct tape!

Water bottle caps / gatorade caps with no words on top

Crayola watercolors

3 pencil boxes that are able to clasp when they close.

If you are able to help us at this time, please contact me at or through the contact form on our class Weebly!
