Weeks of November 19th and 26th:

Thanks to everyone who sent in something for the Feast!  Everything was delicious!

Please return your Thanksgiving Thankful Turkey Feather if you haven’t already…

Each child will be bringing home a letter to decorate with things that start with that letter beginning with A through F.  Please return those as soon as possible.  Everyone will get to do one so watch the folders…

We are all set with water bottles and juice boxes for snack.  I will let you know when to send in more.

Show ‘N Tell:  On your child’s snack day, they may bring something in to tell us about.  Please practice with your child at home.

We have been “catching” the children being good!  If they are polite, kind, help without being asked, rest nicely, etc., they will get to color in a gumball.  After 10 gumballs, they get to pick out of the Treasure box.  Keep up the good work!

Please remember to have your child wear sneakers on Wednesday and Friday.

Please check your child’s orange folder everyday for important information. Please put any notes for the teacher in the folder as we check them everyday.   If your child is absent, we will need a note from home.  We have a supply in the classroom if you need some.

Reminders:  The children are welcome to bring in a water bottle (only water, please) everyday.

Also, please check that your child’s extra set of clothes is weather appropriate and that they have an extra pair of underwear and socks as well.
