12/19 Class Blogs Updated and Other Notes

Christmas Carnival on Friday!  Don't forget your canned good donation to be able to wear your "Christmas Best" to school on Friday.

A special thank you to our wonderful room mothers, Kathy Sautters and Sheila Garilli!  They are responsible for planning, modeling, and managing our terrific Christmas craft this year.  I hope you all enjoy the beautiful creations that will be coming home with your student today and tomorrow. 

I also want to thank Sheila and Kathy for taking on 6th grade's activity in this year's Christmas Carnival.  We will be hosting cookie decorating!  Also, thanks to all who have donated to make this activity possible.  It is sure to be a fun morning on Friday!

Finally, I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas holiday and  wish you many blessings for the coming year.
