Week of November 7th

My dad lost his short, vicious battle with cancer yesterday after being diagnosed 1 month and 1 day ago.  I was blessed to be by his side along with my mom and brother his last few days and I will forever cherish that moment.  Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for allowing me to share something so precious to me with you and for respecting it so so much.  I thank you for all your kind words, support and hugs.
I will be taking the next 2 weeks to be with my family.  I will be postponing our parent conference to December.  I plan to take a kindergarten prep day and schedule your conferences back to back throughout that day.  Again, thank you for your support.
Mrs. Holke will be filling in for me next week (a 2 day week for students) and most likely the following week as well (all minimum days).
I would like to still have our Thanksgiving Tasting Feast for the kiddos and will be discussing that with some parents so that we can organize that.  I will be communicating with you throughout these next 2 weeks via Remind and our blog.  I will still be having regular scheduled parent helpers in the classroom as we work to complete "Christmas Art" (yes, I work like a retail store).  Feel free to message me any questions you may have, you will not be "bothering" me in the least.
Because I will not be seeing you before our Thanksgiving Break, I wish you and your family a blessed holiday for we all have much to be thankful for!

**There will be NO HOMEWORK this week or next week**
