Parent Conferences:  

Parent/teacher conference times came home Wednesday.  If you have not yet confirmed with me, please do so asap by returning the bottom portion of the notice.  I am holding 24 conferences that day, back to back.  Please plan to arrive a few minutes early.  I am sorry, but I will not be able to run over your time slot if you are running late.  I look forward to meeting with you!

Penguin Patch Store

  This is a PTSA fundraiser that will allow your child to shop and pick out some special gifts for family members.   I will be  sure the students make it over to the store.  

Holiday Performance

The Kindergarten students will perform some special Christmas songs to celebrate the season for you!  All are invited!  Parents, grandmas, grandpas, aunts, uncles etc.  No need to be board approved for this.  Our performance will start at 10:30 in the cafeteria.  Please allow plenty of time to park and get to the cafeteria on this day.  This day will be a minimum day for kindergarten students only.  If you have older students, they will be on regular schedule this day.  All kindergartens will attend school from 7:45 to 11:30.  Parents who attend the performance will be able to take their children home from the classroom door immediately following the performance.  This will be a treat you won't want to miss!  

Holiday Surprises

I am asking each student to send in 24 small trinkets to share with the class for the holidays.  These may be small toys, pencils, erasers, small candies.  We will be filling small stockings with these trinkets so please be mindful of their size.  These can be brought to school any time over the next few weeks.  

Holiday Centers

We will be having our holiday centers on December 16 before the performance.  I would love parent help on this day.  You can plan to stay from 7:45 until the performance.  You will have plenty of time to head over and find space to enjoy the performance.  All volunteers in the classroom must be board approved.  Please message me if you'd like to help on this day.  

I will send out a message of some items I need for the holiday centers.  Thank you in advance for your willingness to donate items.
