It’s Almost Turkey TIME!
We have one full week left before our Thanksgiving break. Let’s make it count! Please continue to make sure your child arrives to school on time, is well fed, and rested so that we can use these last 5 days to the fullest. The children are finishing up their veteran letters this week. I’ll show them how to address the envelopes, and the letters should be in the mail soon. Thank you for giving me names and addresses. I know the letters will be after Veterans Day, but I think they’ll all still be pleasantly surprised.
EUROPEAN EXPLORER PROJECTS: Projects are due this Friday, November 17th. Please be sure your child isn’t waiting until the last minute. The only additional homework this week will be to study their spelling words and math facts for their tests on Friday.
THANKSGIVING LUNCH: 3rd grade’s Thanksgiving lunch is being served on November 14th. You are more than welcome to come enjoy some turkey and dressing in the cafeteria with your child that day. If you’re planning on coming, please prepay by either sending in the money in a labeled envelope or by paying online: www.mypaymentsplus.com. Thank you!
Did you know that more than 45,000 kids experience homelessness each year in GA? This is National Homeless Youth Awareness Monty. The PMES Lighthouse Team wants to do something about helping those children in need. They are parnering with the CCYA and sponsoring an event called, “The Pajama Pant Challenge!” This Friday, if students donate a $1, they may wear their pjs to school. It’s a win-win! Kids wear their pajamas and we help kids in need. All proceed benefit The Center for Children & Young Adults.
