December 7th-11th Newsletter

December 7, 2015

Dear Parents,

            We had a very exciting week at school. I am sure you have heard your child talk about our visitor (The Elf on the Shelf) we found on Tuesday sitting in our classroom Christmas tree. Our class voted on a name for our elf and it was decided to name her “Sparkles”. Sparkles watches our students every day and reports back to Santa every night.

            We have been doing some Christmas activities with the students and they are getting very excited about the things we are planning to do before we get out for the holidays.

            Although we are doing fun and exciting activities with the students we are still covering important skills so please continue to check your child’s homework folder and help them read each night.
