Dear Families,

The School Club is working hard at getting everything ready for the Holiday Shopping Fair that will be held on Thursday, December 7th.  Each class will have time to visit the fair and buy gifts for their families and friends.   The Fair will also be open Thursday night from 4:30-8, Friday the 8th from 4:30 – 8, and Saturday the 9th from 9-1.  Don’t forget to send money in with your child on Thursday so that they can shop with their classmates.  If you need any financial assistance please let me know.  On that same note if you or a family that you know needs help with Christmas this year the staff enjoys “adopting” a family and providing some Christmas cheer.   Please reach out to me as we are happy to help.

On December 18th at 6:30 there is a School Board meeting and we will be discussing having a full day kindergarten program for the 2018-19 school year.   We would love to hear your thoughts about this proposal.  I will be having a special Parent/Principal meeting on Wednesday, December 13th at 9:15 to discuss the Full Day Kindergarten proposal.  I encourage you to attend the Parent/Principal meeting or the School Board meeting to learn more about it as well as offer your much valued input.   If you aren’t able to make it to the meetings, please feel free to stop in and chat or send me an email. You can also contact the School Board members (their emails are on the website) with your thoughts and questions.   We have an opening on the School Board.  If you have ever thought about getting involved in local politics this is a great opportunity to do so.

Friday the 22nd we will be having an all school Christmas party in the afternoon.  We will decorate sugar cookies and then watch the movie Santa Buddies as a whole school while we snack on popcorn.  Students are encouraged to wear their favorite pajamas that day and bring blankets to lay on while watching the movie.   It will be a fun way to end the last day before Christmas Vacation.
