Week of December 3rd

Happy December!!!  It’s hard to believe we have already arrived at the last month of school!

We will be having our winter celebration on Wednesday, December 19th from 8:00am-8:45am.  We will be having breakfast that morning and we would love to have a few parents help prepare that morning.  If you are available, please let me know.

Also, in lieu of a gift exchange, my class will be doing a service project.  I’m so excited that the students would prefer to think of someone else during this season.  I’ll be sending out more information this week about donations.  We will be making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for a local addiction recovery shelter that houses families.  This is a long tradition in my classroom and always one that makes a lasting impact.
