I really can't believe we are already here on our last week of December! This first half of the year has been truly incredible as I have worked alongside the best group of educators in the world!
It was so much fun celebrating with everyone that could make the Christmas party and needless to say lots of laughter with friends and family was truly a part of the evening! :)
I am looking forward to our fun activities this week and can't wait to see what you all have been coming up with for our Sing Along on Friday! There will be more fun-filled treats for you as well for our final 5 days of "Who Do We Think of at Christmas Time"!

Important Reminders and Updates
Here are the schedules for Thursday and Friday of this week.
Conference times will need to be shortened due to our events each day. Our lunch schedules for both days will remain the same except for 5th grade which will need to eat at 12:00pm instead of their usual 12:30 time. (5th grade you will also want to arrange your recess time earlier on both days)
Please remember that no more than two grade levels at a time should ever be out on the playground together, so please make sure you watch this as you schedule your recess times on these two days and check with grade levels that share your playground areas!
Book Study - Choice Words
We will be doing a few more activities with our 1st book study at the beginning of January! So, please have the rest of Choice Words finished by January 7th!
Marly Natherson - 26th
Candace Coffee - 28th
