Highlights: It snowed on Saturday! Please be sure your child has an entire set of winter gear so he/she can have fun at recess and stay warm and healthy.
On Monday afternoon before winter break, Zander Tekus brought in a large amount of cookie dough for the Ks. Continuing our kindness theme, the Ks made enough cookies for the whole school. After they made sweet appreciation cards, the Ks delivered cookies and cards to the learning centers and the staff including our bus drivers.
On Tuesday with the help of our amazing, retired teacher Chris Faison the Ks went to The Flying Dog Ranch to look for signs of beaver. To the delight of all, they found many signs.
On Wednesday before we departed for winter break< Addy’s Dad and her Aunt helped to create a wonderful birthday snack for Addy and her class.
Gratitude: Thank you Zander for spending the afternoon helping the Ks make cookies. Thank you Chris for taking us on a wonderful field trip. Thank you Frank and Aunt Kelly for help in the classroom, cleaning tables, and setting out the cupcakes for Addy’s birthday. Thank you Vanessa for helping out on Wednesday.
