Classroom Information

Week of December 18th:

We will have a Birthday party for Jesus on Thursday and meet with our Peer Ministry Partners.  No need to send anything in as cupcakes are on us!

December Snack Calendar was sent home.  We have an abundance of water bottles so we won’t need any for awhile! We have peanut and garlic allergies in our room so we are asking for snacks that do not contain these ingredients.

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.

Please be sure to check your child’s backpack and folder everyday and put any notes for me in your child’s folder.  If your child is absent, I will need a note from home.  I have a supply in the classroom if you need some.
