We are almost to winter break!!
This also means that it is time for our annual gingerbread house decorating activity and classroom holiday celebration! Yahoo!! Please send in one box of graham crackers, one container of frosting, and one large bag of decorations to share with the class. Ideas include: pretzels, m&m's, candy canes, gum drops, etc. Each child also needs to bring in one food item to share for our holiday celebration party on the 17th; please keep the sugary snacks to a minimum. We have enough energy with the excitement of break as is!
Due to difficulty in finding chaperones for field trips I had to cancel three of our planned trips. The field trips that are posted on the website are the only ones we will be going on for the remainder of the year, with the exception of a few in late spring. We need at least 4 adults, beyond myself, to go on trips and it's proving to be very challenging and frustrating. So in an effort to ease some of that, I'm just going to cancel them. I hope you understand.
We have learned A LOT these first two quarters but we have so much more to learn in the second half of the year. When we start back up in January we will be hitting the ground running with the same expectations, if not higher. If you have any questions, please contact me before 8:30am or after 3:45. I apologize if I seem brisk or distant if you come in during the school day but we have a lot going on and my brain is usually trying to do 10 things at once. You can always contact me through email.
*There will be no spelling homework the last week before break, it is a celebration week of all of our hard work!
Thank you, have a wonderful holiday with your family!
