Picture Retake Day: Nov.7
Reminder bring a pumpkin for Monday if you are able- one pumpkin for each buddy couple would be perfect. If you have child proof carving knives please send them as well (with your child's name on it). We don't really want the students using knives. Thanks for your help with this!
Picture Retake Day: Nov.7
It's almost Halloween! The weather is definitely becoming cooler. This morning I awoke to snow on the ground. We will need to make sure students are coming to school properly dressed. All students will be outside rain or shine unless the wind chill is unsafe...so....it is time to get those mittens out and make sure your child has a warm coat and even proper shoes.
With Halloween on the way, I wanted to let you know we will be doing some special things around this next week.
4CatsArtStudio: Thank-you to those parents that have offered to help us this week with driving to the art studio. A letter is coming home on Monday regarding this field trip. All students also need to have a waiver signed before we go on Friday. I have included that with our letter on Monday!
Phone List: Class phone list will be sent home on Monday- please look for this!
