Dear Parents,

This Wednesday, the pig races will be held in the Gym. Your child has been informed of their team color. Please have your child wear their team color on Wednesday with jeans and tennis shoes. Wednesday will be a fun and exciting day!

We are looking for volunteers to help with one of the most popular events of the school year – The Pig Races! We would be so blessed if you could come and lend a hand on Wednesday, Dec. 6th. We begin set-up in the gym at 8:30 and the Pig Races get started at 10:00. There are lots of easy-to-do tasks and we have almost as much fun setting up as we do at the event. We are always finished before lunchtime but you don’t have to be available for the entire 3 hours in order to help. We hope to see you there!

Congratulations to our top 9 sellers:

Our Christmas Party will be on December 22nd, 2017 from 10:00 am - 12:00 pm. This Christmas Party will include a gift exchange, crafts, snacks, and board games. In order to have a gift exchange, I would like boy students to bring in one gift for another boy and girls to bring in one gift  for another girl.  Please send the gift wrapped with your child’s name to indicate who the gift is from. Please do not spend more than $10. I would like students to bring in their favorite board game to play during the party. Here is a [Christmas Party Sign-up Sheet ] in which you may sign up to bring a snack or drink item for the students. Thank you for all of your help and support!

The last day of school before Christmas break, December 22nd, is a half day with the release time of 12:00 pm. Daycare will not be available. Daycare will be available from January 2-January 5.

In order to complete special projects and crafts this summer, Mr. Ortiz and Mrs. Barnett are asking for parents to donate empty cardboard rolls; such as paper towel and wrapping paper rolls (please do not donate toilet paper rolls). You may have your child bring these to class and I will pass them along. Thank you!
