Holiday Celebration – Thank you in advance to our room parents and all who are helping to organize or contribute to our holiday celebration on Thursday. You are all welcome to join us at 2:30pm on Thursday to wish our friends happy holidays and safe journeys. 

Writing – We look forward to our last week of poetry writing before the break.  Although we are completing our poetry unit, this is a writing form that we hope has inspired students to try some poetry on their own or when they have free-writing.

Math –  Look out for an end of unit math assessment that will come home next week. You will see teacher notes that may give you some insight as to your child’s progress at this time. Any questions or concerns, please contact the teacher. Getting ready to travel? Visiting relatives? Don’t forget to pack a deck of playing cards, dice or dominoes. Playing games with family is a great way for kids to build number sense – grandparents are particularly good for this!

Leaving Early / Returning late? If your child will not be in school each day through Thursday, December 19 or will not be returning to school on Monday, January 13, please let the teacher know for planning purposes.
