12/4 - 12/8

Christmas Fun Fridays - every Friday in December!  Wear your favorite Christmas attire and enjoy a surprise from your teacher!

The Christmas Play is Thursday, December 7 @ 10:00 AM and 7:00 PM.   We sent information home regarding what the children should wear (black pants, long sleeve black shirt and black socks), the times of the events, DVD order forms, etc.   We encourage you to sign your child out after the morning performance.  Years of experience have taught us that they get very tired, and they need to return to school at 6:15 that evening for the night performance.
Please send your child's black pants, long sleeve black shirt and black socks to school with them no later than Tuesday, December 5.  Please place them in a bag with your child's name on it.

Progress Reports were sent home on Wednesday, November 29.  Please sign and return one copy and return to me as soon as possible. 

The only test will be Writing on Monday, December 4.

 4/22 - 4/26 Spring Break will be from April 19th through April 28th.  Students will return on Monday, April 29th.
