Good afternoon! I wanted to let you know that as part of our Social Studies Curriculum, we have been studying Winter Holidays from Around the World. So far we have learned about Diwali, Kwanzaa and Hanukkah. We have been talking about how these holidays are similar and what commonalities they all have. The children have been enjoying this unit so much and I am planning on ending the week with some Christmas activities based around the book "The Polar Express" by Chris VanAllsburg. I hope the kids will enjoy it! Please allow them to wear their pajamas on Friday, December 1st.
Also, please be aware that the book fair is happening this week. Media by Moonlight is next Tuesday night, December 5th. Hopefully some of us can make it over our track out.
Lastly, Friday is our last day of school before our mid year track out. It is a full day of school. I will be sending pencil boxes home to restock with pencils, crayons, erasers, scissors, etc. Please be sure to send them back in January.
We return to school January 2, 2018. Report cards will go home when we return from track out.
I hope everyone has a safe and wonderful track out and winter break!
Hillary GIlland and Jenny Holt
