Sports Day in K-1

K-1 News
December 8, 2017

Brrrr! What happened to our warm fall weather? As cooler temperatures have arrived, please make sure your child is sent to school with a winter coat, mittens, and a hat every day. We always go outside for recess unless the wind chill is below 20 degrees or the weather is inclement.

Also, we asked at the beginning of the year for a spare change of clothes to be kept in our rooms. Some of the articles that were sent are now unable to be worn because we are now in colder weather. Please send in a winter change of clothing and we will send home your summer clothes. The extra set of clothing does not have to be dress code. We have accidents and spills daily in K-1, so that extra change of clothes is a necessity!

Our Christmas program will be held at 6:30pm on Wednesday, December 13th at the church. Your child should wear church/holiday attire; no jeans please. There will be a full dress rehearsal on the 13th at 10am, which public and family members are welcome to attend. Your child should be dropped off at their homeroom classroom at 6pm on Wednesday evening before the program.

Friday the 15th will be the last day to turn in stocking stuffer items for teens with cancer at Barnes Hospital, which is our Advent fundraiser this year, Stockings for Strength. Thank you for all of your wonderful donations in making this meaningful fundraiser a success!

Have a great weekend,
Mrs. Calcagno and Mrs. Dodd

P.S. Please don’t forget to return the two permission slips and money that are due for our field trip and our roller skating unit!

Finally….please remember to send in your donation of two bottles syrup bottles by Christmas break! (for Pancake & Sausage Breakfast in January!) Thanks!!
