Upcoming events

Dear Families,

Friday we will be celebrating our best behavior for the month of December.  The students need 11 out of 14 days on green or higher to participate in this celebration.  We would like to serve hot chocolate and cookies for the celebration.  We are in need of a canister of hot cocoa mix,  a large bag of marshmallows, and 2 packages of Oreo cookies.  Please let me know if anyone is able to send in these items for Friday.

Friday will be a Pajama Day.  All Kindergarten children are invited to wear pajamas to school.

It is that time of year again when students need to replenish some needed school supplies for their tool boxes.  Please send in the following supplies with your child the week of January 5: box of 24 crayons, a box of markers, a dry erase marker, and 4 large glue sticks.  Please write your child’s names on their supplies.

The children will be bringing home a special gift they made for parents.  It is fragile.


Thank you!

Gingerbread shaped cookies

Calling all Bakers!

I am in need of a parent who enjoys baking.  Next Tuesday, December 16,  the Gingerbread Man is going to make a surprise visit to our classroom.  We will be going on a Gingerbread Man hunt to find him.   I am in need of 24 gingerbread man shaped cookies for this activity.  The cookies do not need frosting.  The children will be frosting the cookies and decorating them.

Please let me know if anyone is available to bake the cookies.  I will supply the frosting and candy for decorating.

Thank you,


Reminder:  Next Wednesday, Dec. 17, my class is scheduled for the Holiday gift shop that will be coming to our school.  We will be going at 9:00 a.m.  If any parents are available to help the children while they shop, please let me know.  Two-three parent helpers would be great!  We should be done around 10:00-10:15.

Trade 10 Projects

Dear Families,

I have extended the due date for the Trade 10 Projects.  If your child has not brought in 10 items to trade they may do so on Monday, December 1.  This will be the last day to send in items.  Unfortunately, students who do not send in 10 items will not be able to participate in the trade.  They will have to watch the process of trading.  I do not want any child left out.

Also November homework calendars are due Monday too!  As an incentive, children who return their homework on time will receive an Eagle ticket.

On Tuesday, Dec.2 , we will be working with push and pull items.  Please send in an item with your child that you push or pull to demonstrate the action.  Items must fit in your child’s backpack.

Have a Wonderful Thanksgiving!


Winter Gear

Dear Families,

The winter weather has arrived.  Please be sure to send your child with appropriate winter clothing.  In order to play on the playground children will need snow pants and boots.  Otherwise they have to play on the black top.  When sending in boots be sure to send in a pair of shoes to change into upon arrival to the classroom.  All children need to have a warm jacket, hat, and gloves.  Please send snow pants in a reusable fabric shopping bag so the children can easily transport them to and from school.

Also, please update your child’s change of clothes.  The clothing they have in their buckets are summer outfits.  Be sure to send in a pair of pants, a shirt, socks, and underwear.  All items need to be labeled.

Reminder, I am at my math meeting tomorrow.  See you on Wednesday.
