Thank you EVERYONE for attending Parent-Teacher Conferences. I enjoy having the chance to tell you how wonderful your child is doing. This months character trait focus is CITIZENSHIP. We will be doing a few activities and talking about Veterans. Here are some other things happening in the classroom:
"Let's CAN Hunger" Food Drive
This food drive is being run by the kindergartners. The goal is for every class to fill a barrel. Our classroom barrel is about a quarter full. PLEASE BRING CANNED FOOD or BOXES to add to our barrel. Friday is the last day for this.
This FRIDAY (Nov. 10) we will finally have another Parent And Child Time. Please join us from 2:00-2:20 in the classroom for a Thanksgiving art project! Friday, Nov. 17 we will have NO PACT as we will be celebrating citizen of the month and Nov. birthdays.
Veteran's Day Assembly
Please join us and invite Veterans to our school assembly on Monday Nov. 13 beginning at 9:00am in the gym.
Book order forms were sent home last week. This will be the order I put in for Christmas. Books are great for stockings or gifts. Please submit these orders online using our class code MGXMW or complete the order form (with check) and bring it to class before next Friday Nov. 17. Let me know if they are a gift so I can arrange for you to pick them up in secret.
We are almost finished learning the alphabet and then we jump into reading and writing stories. Our new letters (and the last ones) are: b, l, r, u, w, j, y, x, k. If your child is continuing to struggle with these, please practice them nightly! Also don't forget to read your "Book in a Bag" nightly. The kids are trying to earn cookies or extra recess by having EVERY student bring their book back.
I am THANKFUL for each of you and your children. They bring so many blessings to my life and truly are an amazing group of kids. Two FULL weeks until Thanksgiving Break (Nov. 20-24) so lets make the most of it!!!!
