Dear Parents,  

 Please be aware with the Holiday Season approaching and Winter Break there may be unique class and school activities which could change our daily routines and weekly lessons.  One of our goals this year in class is to be flexible, and this time of year is a perfect chance to work on it.  

 With the changing weather and of course snow, we still go outside for recess, of course this depends on the temperature.  For students to play in snow, he/she will need winter coat, snow pants, gloves, boots, and hat.  

 Wednesday is the Underground Railroad field trip at Piltcher Park.  We will be leaving school around 9:15 and returning back about 12:00.  We will be having lunch when we return to school.  Please know this will be an indoor and outdoor trip.  Students wear coat gloves, hat, and boots.  I already have my allowed two chaperones, but thank you too all who volunteered.  

We are looking forward to Game Day on Thursday, December 20th.  Students get to be together with their friends while playing good, old-fashioned board games! Please send your child with one or more games that they know how to play independently so they do not get frustrated and can enjoy their time. Please, NO video game or hand held electronic devices. Our special time lasts for 40 minutes. Please be sure to label all of your items and send them in a secure bag so they make it home.
