Today marks the end of second quarter. It is hard to believe that we are halfway through this school year, already. Wow, time is really flying by this year.
Students will have until tomorrow to get any of their missing work into their teacher. Be sure to ask your child for their missing assignment sheet that they will be bringing home today. This way you can help them get items completed at home to turn into their teacher tomorrow. If students need until Tues., Jan. 3rd for last minute items, like Reading Revolutions, then they can turn them in on Tuesday by 8:50 AM. If they aren’t turned in by that time, the assignment will not be counted. We will be having our Worker’s Holiday, for second quarter, on Wednesday, January 3rd. This is the day we return back from Christmas break. We will be having a Read-A-Thon. Students can wear their new Christmas jammies and besides bringing their favorite books to read, they can also bring with them a cozy blanket and pillow so they can be comfortable as they read. This will happen from 10:00 until lunch.
Mrs. Williams and Mrs. Little are having their gift exchange tomorrow morning. If you have a child in either of their classes, remind them to bring the gift they got for this fun activity, if they haven’t done so already. Remember to label the gift: to a boy, from a boy and to a girl, from a girl. If you signed up to bring treats or drinks to the Christmas party for Mrs. Little’s class, those items will need to be brought to school tomorrow, as well. Mrs. Payne’s class will be playing games and having fun with the Christmas Bells. If you’d like to send a treat for her class, you are welcome to do so. There are 29 students.
We encourage students to read over the Christmas break and to try and practice their typing skills as much as possible. In January, students will be given typing practice sheets for homework, so they might as well get practicing now. They can choose sentences to type from novels they are reading, lyrics to a song they like, or make up their own sentences to type, but we encourage them to practice.
Please make sure your child comes to school with a coat during these winter months. Sometimes they have to go out to break for lunch and when they don’t have a coat, it gets pretty cold for the thirty minutes they are outside.
We hope all of you have a very Merry Christmas. We look forward to getting back to a new quarter next year.
Mrs. Little, Mrs. Payne and Mrs. Williams
