Happy Winter Break Everyone!

Just thinking ahead to our Valentine’s party, I would like to have a little contest for the best “Valentine Holder”! If you go online to Pinterest or just google “valentines”, you can find lots of ideas for cute valentine holders out of cereal, shoe, or Kleenex boxes. Create a cute valentine box, bag, or otherwise to bring to school to store your valentines in as we pass them out. On party day, we’ll have a vote for the best holder and that person will get a prize! (It will be a good one!!)

Now, no worries if you are not a crafty person! If this is not your cup of tea, just decorate a paper bag (lunch size or a little larger) with your name on it to hang off of your desk. (I do have bags here at school if you need one – just let me know.) I want this to be fun! No pressure ok?

Ok, get to work you crafters! When yours is done, feel free to bring it in any time before Feb. 13th!

Our Christmas Party

IMG_4615Our christmas party was so much fun. There were four stations, each with a really fun activity. One had two games in one station; one game was feed santa and the other was make the rings land on the elf hat. Another station was take a picture with a sign that said “ho ho ho” or a Santa hat. The next station is make a ornament with strips of paper and a plastic ball. The next station was feasting on treats. At the end of it all, we watched a move called Christmas Odyssey and got packed up. It was a great party!

Happy HolidaysI haven’t even said “Happy Thanksgiving” yet, and we are already planning Christmas activities! Turkey, snow, and holidays are already upon us! If you like to plan ahead, I wanted to let all moms and dads know that our Christmas party will be Thursday, Dec. 18th from 2:00 to 3:00. We are holding it a day earlier than our last day to alleviate all of the parking congestion caused when our whole building has their parties on the same day! Our last day, the 19th, we are planning some fun activities together as a whole 4th grade!

Another reminder for your calendar is that our Holiday Program is Tuesday, Dec. 2nd from 7:45 to 8:15. More information will be forthcoming!
