Newsletter for November 13th - 17th

As we approach the Thanksgiving holiday, we are reminded of the many blessings in our lives. This week, the children will be writing and illustrating some of the things they are thankful for in their own lives.  I hope your family is blessed with a safe and grace filled Thanksgiving!

Thank you to all who signed up to contribute an item for our Friendship Feast.  Please send the item to school with your child by Wednesday.  I appreciate your help!

Reminders:

This week, I will be sending home a progress report with your child to let you know which skills need extra reinforcement at home.  Thank you for helping your child with these skills.

Please practice and return the November word list this week if possible. When we return from Thanksgiving break it will be November 26th! Please look for the December word list on Friday.  December will be a busy month and the second quarter will end before Christmas break, so please remember to practice and return the December word list as soon as your child is ready.  Thank you for your help!

AR tests will be administered on Mondays and Tuesdays.

Thanksgiving Break will be November 19th-23rd. We will resume classes on November 26th.

Please mark your calendars for the annual Santa's Workshop.  It will be held on Thursday, December 6, from 1-3 p.m.  Students will be doing crafts  and decorating  gingerbread houses.  We will need  parent helpers.  Parent helpers are required to be VIRTUS trained.  There will be a VIRTUS training class on Tuesday evening at 6:30 p.m.
