Happy Thanksgiving!

     Before I stuff our turkey and before I eat too many slices of Grandma B’s special homemade ice cream with pumpkin pie, I wanted to say how thankful I am to have your children with me this school year.  I feel so very blessed to be a part of their lives and to be given the opportunity to share in their learning. Thank you parents for all of your support at home and for your hours of volunteer time in our classroom.  Room 104 and our school are exciting places to learn because of you!  I hope you have a safe and happy holiday weekend. I look forward to seeing those first grade smiles again on Monday morning!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is Thursday, November 22!  In preparation for this national holiday, we will be reading books about the first Thanksgiving celebration and completing other themed activities in our classroom.  I know this is a very busy travel weekend for many families; if your child will be missing any school days please contact me as soon as possible so that I may gather work to be sent home.

There are no classes Wednesday, November 21 – Friday, November 23rd.

Children may bring money in a sealed envelope or baggie. Please clearly label envelopes with your child’s name. I will keep all money safe until shopping time.
