Spelling week of 1/16-1/19

Due to the holiday, I am sending home the spelling packet for next week today (Friday). Your child does not need to complete it this weekend but I wanted you to have it since it is a short week and there is potential for snow. Have a great weekend!

Party

Today all parents are invited to attend the Holiday Party (12:05-1:15). Please remember to sign in at the office and unfortunately no siblings can attend this special event. If you plan to dismiss your child and take them with you after the party, there will be a sign-out sheet in the classroom. Merry Christmas!

Sneakers

Now that snow season is here please send your child to school in appropriate snow gear so that they can have fun playing outside. Also, if you would like to have your child leave their sneakers at school so they do not have to bring them back and forth, that is fine. They will definitely need them for Mondays and Thursdays when we have P.E. Thank you!

Candy and Cards

Today your child received a reply card from Mrs. Veilleux's sister who is in the US Air Force. We sent her cards a few weeks ago as part of a writing activity and she responded to the students individually. She also sent along a mini candy cane as a gift. I asked the children to keep these in their folders until they got home so that you could give them the OK before they had them. I just wanted you to know where the special mail/candy came from.

Halloween Fun

We had a great time at the Halloween Parade and Party a few weeks ago (sorry for the delay)! Thank you so much for those of you who were able to send in snack items and/or help with costumes. We had fun leading the parade to LSS. Then we ended the day with a yummy snack and a fun Bingo Game. A big thank you to Nicole Mazur for organizing another fun event!

Indoor Recess

Last week, Ms. Comer came in and reminded us how to use the "Buddy" Benches on the playground to make sure everyone is included at recess. Today a few students took it upon themselves to create an indoor "Buddy" Bench for Indoor Recess. It fills my bucket to see this kindness!
