Fantastic Week so Far

Our little kindergarten elves have been busy making winter crafts this week. Thank you to our 8th grade buddies and all the wonderful volunteers (including my own mom) who helped make possible all of our fun crafts and activities! Here is a sneak peak of what we've been doing/ working on...

Fun Friday!

So happy to be back! We started the morning painting giant pinecones green. We will be decorating them with glitter next week! After music class we did a fun Santa craft with our 8th grade buddies. And then Ms. Seliger came in the afternoon to do a fun and cute candy cane art project with the kids. Next week we have even more fun planned. Please let me know if your are able to help out next week. To be able to participate in the K-2 craft day, we still need 2-3 more parents to work at craft tables on Wednesday from 9:30-11am. I prepped all the crafts today after school so all you need to do is show up and work with a bunch of excited and happy kiddos! :)

Thursday Update!

Dear Families,

Hope you are all safe, indoors, and if you don't have to work...drinking hot chocolate in your PJs all day! ;)

First, I want to thank you all for your understanding, kindness, and support over the past week and a half.  It means so much to me and my family. 
I am looking forward to seeing the kids tomorrow.  I have missed them! Since we didn't get to start our fun winter projects this week, we will try to pack as much fun into tomorrow and next week as possible.  We will make sure it is a very special and fun time for kids.  That being said, we can really use your help!  Please email me, or sign up using the links below, if you are able to help in class next week!  If we are able to send things home with you to prep, that is awesome too...please let me know if you can help cut, prep, etc....and please let me know if you have a glue gun at home. :) Thanks.

I will be decorating the room after school tomorrow.  We have some, but would LOVE and appreciate donations of winter/holiday decorations for the classroom!

A few reminders:
The name of your child's secret pal went home yesterday. Please don't forget to bring your wrapped gift no later than Thursday. Please remind your child that his/her secret pal is TOP SECRET until Friday- so they shouldn't writ their name on outside of gift...only the recipient's name.  Also, please don't forget to bring in your assigned item(s) for the Winter Tree Project ASAP.

Thank you!!!
