It’s hard to believe that December is here already! We’ve been having a great year so far. The next couple of weeks leading up to Christmas will be very busy with Christmas play practice and various service projects that will take place before Christmas. Stay tuned for more details on the service project grade and one two will take part in.
This week in grade one and two:
Wednesday — Phonics test
Friday — Spelling Test — Grade one list # 7, Grade two list # 9
Because of the storm last Thursday subway orders were not filled. Subway will be delivered on Monday. If you ordered a sub for last Thursday it will be delivered Monday.
Our classroom does have a microwave, however, I have been noticing that each day at lunch there are quite a number of students who have things in their lunch that need to be heated. This causes a line up and often does not give enough time for students to eat their lunch. We don’t have enough time at lunch for all students to use the microwave. I will make up a schedule for lunch time microwave use. This schedule will be posted by the end of the week. For this week please limit the lunch items that need to be heated. If you do not wish your child to use the microwave at lunch, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students have been working hard preparing for our Christmas Musical in elementary. As part of the program this year, we are asking students to wear the following colors for the Christmas program: Red, White, Black, or Silver. Any combination of these colors are acceptable. Each student will also be responsible for having a pair of sunglasses in one of the four colors as well. We are looking forward to the challenge of learning many new songs and lines. Let the holiday season begin!
Also, here is a link to the words of our songs. (click here for the file) It would be helpful for grade one and two to read over the words each night with an adult to help them learn the words.
Important Dates & Upcoming Events:
Dec 12 – Christmas Program (afternoon and evening performances)
