December 19-20 Schedule

The last two days of school before Christmas holidays begin have arrived.   Please note the following:

Monday, December 19 – Christmas Eve at school, wear pajamas and be prepared to play outside at recess times

Tuesday, December 20 – Christmas Party, school closing at noon

We will be playing outside.   Please ensure your child is dressed for the weather.   When we come inside, we will be decorating gingerbread houses.     This will be the highlight of the party.   I will try to post some pictures over the holidays.

After we finish decorating our gingerbread houses, we will then be eating treats provided by some of our students.  Food suggestions include: cookies, cupcakes, chips, clementines or other finger foodsIf you can help in this area please email me or reply to this blog post.   Presently, we have no treats for our party.   I would ask that each child bring his own drink.  Water is highly recommended as the children are usually very thirsty after decorating the gingerbread houses.

Due to the fragile nature of your child’s masterpiece, I would appreciate each child being picked up at our classroom door between 11:45am and noon, as this is a half day of school.  Thanks for your cooperation.  Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Christmas Party News

We will be having our annual class Christmas party on Tuesday, December 20.  To begin, students will be enjoying some outdoor activities.  Please ensure that your child is dressed properly for the weather. 

We will then be coming inside to decorate gingerbread houses.  As in years past, I will provide the houses as part of my Christmas present to the children.  Each child is asked to bring $3 to school by Wednesday, December 14 to help pay for the candy to decorate the houses.

After we finish decorating our gingerbread houses, we will then be eating treats provided by some of our students.  Food suggestions include: cookies, cupcakes, chips, clementines or other finger foods.  If you can help in this area please email me.   I would ask that each child bring his own drink.  Water is highly recommended as the children are usually very thirsty after decorating the gingerbread houses.
