We hope that next time you pass by the office, you are able to sign up for a parent conference. We would like you to bring your child so they can show you some of the hard work they have done at school. Most times are 3:20 (after carline) or 3:40, but we could fit in an occasional morning or 4pm conference if you are able to ask us in advance. Students and siblings are able to attend aftercare free of charge during conferences. We are so pleased with everyone's hard work and hope to have 100 percent participation this year. We were so close last year!
Also, our upcoming activities include a Thanksgiving feast the day before the actual holiday. Students will work in groups to cook a dish in class and enjoy our collective cooking successes. We will also be studying the actual facts of that thanksgiving meal that would later become so famous and many true stories behind it. I will be bringing my sewing machine to school for a holiday sewing project next month. I am always amazed at how well many students are able to operate a sewing machine. If anyone has any extra fabric, especially in holiday colors and patterns, it would be very much appreciated.
We also plan to sing a few songs at a field trip to a nursing home next month at a date to be determined soon, so stay tuned for more details! As we approach the end of the year, don't forget to make a tax credit donation to help defray the cost of our many activities, including those at the camps we plan to attend next year. Your donation can ensure that your child and others are able to attend these amazing educational experiences, and the money is refunded, dollar for dollar on next year's tax return. We are so fortunate to live in a state that supports these kinds of wonderful opportunities.
Thanks so much for your support!
