Well, it looks like the cold and flu season has hit Mt. Bethel. We are working hard to try and keep everyone healthy before the holidays. Our class has had one confirmed case of strep, and I know of multiple cases of the flu throughout the school. Please remind your children of the importance of hand washing. We will be taking extra precautions disinfecting tables and cleaning our hands in the classroom. If your child does become sick, please keep him/her at home until fever free for 24 hours without fever reducing medicine. I would rather your child miss a few days of school than spread illness to other students and families. This time of year we are wrapping up our different units of study, and doing extensions and holiday activities, so your child’s learning will not be impacted if he or she is out during this time. We just want everyone to stay healthy, so they can enjoy their break to the fullest!
Mrs. Hill and I are looking forward to the staff holiday luncheon tomorrow. Thank you to our TPVs for coming in and making it possible for us to attend. Students will be creating our class giving bag, which would not be possible without all of your donations. Thank you for helping us encourage generosity and kindness with our children.
Dec. 16th- field trip to Lego Land. All students will be given pizza and a drink for lunch. Everyone should wear our red class t-shirt. Thank you to Mrs. Sanchetti and Mrs. Govil for volunteering to chaperone.
