Weekly News – Thanksgiving is Near!

Dear Families,

Happy week before Thanksgiving break! It just seems the time flies. The children have decorated the room nicely with beautiful and fun turkeys. We’ll have a special pumpkin treat on Friday.

Please speak with your child about behavior in the classroom. It’s always important to be kind, work hard, listen and follow directions. We always expect extra silliness around the holidays, but we’re looking to the children to try hard to do the right thing. We can definately have fun and learn at the same time!

I’m sorry to report our little hamster is sickly and had to be returned to the pet store for medical attention. We’ll have to wait and see if Leopold can return to the classroom, but if he can’t, we’ll find a new little hamster friend.

with gratitude,

Mrs. Pennington
