Game Party and Feast

Don't forget that tomorrow is our Panther Pride game party!  Students may bring one card or board game to play with their friends.  It's a good idea to write your child's name on the game box.  Please do not send electronic games, or games with a lot of tiny pieces.  Also thanks to everyone who signed up for our Thanksgiving feast!  Feel free to send the snacks with your child in the morning and we will get them into the fridge if necessary.  We will be enjoying those snacks in the afternoon while we do a Thanksgiving sequencing activity.  Thank you!

Weekly Update

If you have not turned in your spelling bee fundraiser money, please send it in as soon as possible!  On Tuesday afternoon we will be having a schoolwide game party to celebrate earning 3000 Panther Pride tickets!  We are proud of our students for remembering to be safe, show respect, and be responsible.  We will also be enjoying a "Thanksgiving Feast" in our class that afternoon.  Because of the short week we will not be having library or PE on Tuesday.  Our first trimester ends on Monday, November 20th.  Please look for your child's report card to come home on the 30th.  We hope you all enjoy a nice, relaxing holiday!  Thanksgiving Break is the 22nd-26th.
