Welcome to the second week of Advent!
We have been preparing for the Advent season at school by acting out Random Acts of Kindness. Mrs. Blackburn has an act of kindness each day she would like all of the children to do to prepare.
For The Spirit of Christmas Mrs Blackburn has asked that each grade bring in certain items. It was in the newsletter but I wanted to put in a reminder. The season is about giving and this is certainly a wonderful opportunity to help those in need. 3Rd grade is responsible for bringing rice, cereal or dried beans. Some families have already participated and it is greatly appreciated. Let's see if more of us can help. Thank you
12/11/18 Cherish is tomorrow. Your child will have a note stapled in their planner for those who have signed up to drive. Thank you

The next two weeks will be very busy. Please check your child's planner daily and remind them to write in it each day.
Let us prepare our hearts and mind as we travel through this Advent Season. Let us think of those who are less fortunate and for those who are in need. We will be discussing acts of kindness and how to help others.
Continue to remind your child about their classroom conduct behavior. We are continually stopping our classroom instruction for students who are off task, talking or being disruptive.
It is also important that all students come to school prepared with the needed school supplies. Many students do not have scissors, markers or crayons. Please ask your child if they need any supplies. It can be disruptive if they are not prepared and have to ask myself or other students for supplies.
Reminder: If your child has a fever they must not return to school for 24 hours. Along with that please do not send your child is they do not feel well. I would rather them stay home instead of trying to work through the day. Also it would help to keep our classroom healthy if they rest instead of going to school.
