  • Please send a healthy snackin for 25 children. We welcome donations of bananas, cuties, apples and grapes. Please try to send gluten free and peanut free snacks to accommodate our students with allergies.  This month last names with K-Z should donate.  A special thanks to the families that donate every month to snack, even when it is not their month!!
  • Would you like to come in and share your family’s holiday tradition? Please send me an email if you are interested in sharing artifacts or foods that are unique to your family during the winter season. I would like to schedule families to share at the end of the day (3pm?)
  • Mark your calendars for Thursday, December 21st @ 2.  We will be making gingerbread houses.  We will need lots of volunteers for this activity.  A letter will go home next week asking for donations to the project.
  • The students will perform in a holiday assembly on Thursday, December 21st. We included it on the calendar but I am not sure this is open to families.  Last year it was just for the students but I will let you know as I learn more.
