Greetings room 106! I am writing to you from home and I miss the class so much! I am feeling better every day and will be returning to school tomorrow yay! I was surprised to find I had the flu because I was NOT vomiting! My symptoms were an upset stomach, a high fever, loss of appetite and nausea and a NASTY cold and painful cough! When I went to the doctor they checked me for the flu and it was confirmed. So, if your child appears to have a bad cough/cold and a fever these next few months it’s definitely worth a trip to the doctors office! I’ll be sure to let you know if and when students are feeling odd at school. Let’s hope this does not happen 🙂
This week in school here is what you need to know:
*Tuesday: 1st graders will take the overdue spelling test for the -ch words we studied last week! Sorry for the delay, but you have extra time to practice tonight!
*Wednesday: there is a Buffalo Wild Wings Event this Wednesday night (20% of proceeds come back to DuVall!) See the link below to view the flyer!
*The Annual DuVall sing a long will take place on Dec. 22, from 2:30 – 3:30 in the gym. Parents are invited to attend and enjoy some holiday songs!
*Our classroom will be having a little Christmas party before the sing along on the 22nd of December! I will be setting up a sign up Genius and a special note just for this occasion this week! Thank you for your patience and in advance for coming to celebrate with us!

Spelling: First graders will take the spelling test on Tuesday and work towards the next lesson as well. Thank you very much for your patience as I have been sick and out! If this ever happens, just keep studying the same list until we take it 🙂 I’ll send home the new list of words, suggested activities and flash cards tomorrow!
I hope this newsletter finds you all well! I will add or modify anything as the week progresses, just in case their are any important dates I have not written about!
