Dear Parents,

Parent/Teacher Conferences:  Parents, please sign up on your desired conference time.  Here is the link for scheduling your conference [Schedule].  We need six more families need to sign up.  Please do that soon.  Thank you to those who have already signed up!

With the cooler weather upon us, the jackets and sweaters are out.  Please label your child’s outwear with his/her name as so many of them are similar (lots of navy blue) and the children don’t always recognize theirs.   Also, for parents of girls: if your girl wears a dress or skirt, be sure she also wears shorts underneath.  Bike shorts work really well.  Thank you!

I want to thank all the families that participated in the Frozen Food Fundraiser!  We appreciate all you did to support your child’s classroom!  We will let you know who will be entered in the pig races as soon as the office confirms the orders.  Also, they will get the privilege of being a “Teacher for a Day” with special treats!  Thank you for your support and hard work!

Volunteers are needed for the Frozen Food delivery to help separate the orders for our class on Tuesday, November 7.  Please let our room moms (Mrs. Keener and Mrs. Amiwero) know or email me if you are able to help out.  We sure would appreciate it!

We will be sending home a Puzzlemania yellow slip.  It is an offer for activity books filled with many educational, fun, and various kinds of creative puzzles for your child to engage in.  Please fill out the slip, sign it, and return by Friday.  The class earns rewards if we turn in all the slips whether you check yes or no and you sign it.  Thank you!

Thank you to Mr. and Mrs. Lenchak for bringing in doughnuts and juice to celebrate Abby’s birthday!  Everyone enjoyed them tremendously!  Happy Birthday, Abby!

Blessings,

Mrs. Owens
