Dear Parents,

This last week it was obvious that the students had been off on vacation.  Their reading skills were not as sharp; they were rushing more through classwork, making careless mistakes, etc.  This reminded me of how fast they lose ground and how important it is to keep practicing at home, even while on vacation.

Progress reports were emailed to you on Wednesday.  Please review the grades and discuss them with your child.  Let me know if you did not receive the email with the link.

Due to the Christmas Concert and Spaghetti Dinner, Wednesday, Dec. 20 will be a late start @ 9:25am.  If you need to be at work early that day, students can be dropped off at the G Building by 8:00a.m. at no charge.

*Wednesday - Pig Races - Wear team color (team assignment sheet was sent home on Thursday).  

Mrs. Barnett will need several volunteers to help set up that morning.  The main need is from 8:30 to 10:00.

*December 19 - Christmas Concert: Each child will need a cowboy hat.  Bring to classroom on Monday, 12/11.  

*December 20 - School starts @ 9:25am

*December 22 - Christmas Party/Book Exchange (value no more than $5.00) - wrap book (no gift bags) and write “from: (your child’s name)”.

*December 22 - Minimum day (12:00 dismissal), No Day Care - All students must be picked up at noon. 

*February 22 - Field Trip to Powerhouse Science Center
