This Friday is our field trip to the West Valley Food Pantry. Please bring in your Alphabet Bag of food to donate on Friday morning by 7:45! Unfortunately I cannot store the bags in the classroom as we have mice and that will serve as an invitation to our classroom. We will take them to assembly. The children will line up in the alphabetical order of the bags (I will need your help for this) as we are standing up at the assembly to tell about our "We Give Back Project." Some of the children who want to, will speak at the assembly so be sure to attend.
We will be back at school at recess that day. Hanukkah begins tomorrow night and I would like to celebrate Hanukkah in our classroom next Monday with the following activities:
Playing dreidel, making latkes, Hanukkah traditions sharing by those who would like to. If you would like to help me with this, please send me an email tomorrow or talk to me before class. We can have our Hanukkah either from 9-10 or 1-2.
Please plan on attending one or both of the Holiday Programs on Friday, December 17th (8:30 & 10:30). This is also the week of Parent Conferences (let me know if you have not received the Google Document).
We will be celebrating Christmas traditions on Thursday, December 16th from 12:30-1:30. Heather will be planning the party along with Anne. Please volunteer to help with this fun cookie decorating and story telling time.
There will be volunteer opportunities for "We Give Back" and for our traditional Topanga Gallery art show, which will be in the Spring. Please consider helping with this wonderful even
A big thank you to Lori, Vince and Katy for doing such a great job with our Art Trek lesson today, and a huge thank you to my wonderful classroom volunteers who make small group learning a reality in Room K. I am Thankful for all of you.
