Hello Again!

It’s so nice to be back after a couple of unexpected days off! This is a busy week, and hopefully we will be here ALL five days.

The annual Willamette Gift Drive is underway and this is the final week we have to contribute. Right after Thanksgiving break you should have received a letter in your child’s backpack explaining the gift drive and what is needed to give our sponsored family a holiday season to remember. It’s not too late to send items (unwrapped) and/or gift cards! We are sponsoring a family of 6 with three boys aged 5 mos., 5, and 9 years old, and a girl, age 2. Items have been trickling in but our days off have slowed things down a bit. We are needing everything by Thurs., but if you are planning to donate, sending it in by Wed. would be helpful in case we end up having the snow that is forecast and miss another day of school.

On Friday we will have a party to celebrate the holidays. Our room parents have organized a fun morning for the children and you are all welcome to come. We will start around 8:15 and will be finished up by recess at 9:30. We are also having a pajama day, where pajamas are encouraged but not required! Your child may bring a small blanket and/or a stuffed animal as well. Both should be able to fit inside his/her backpack

Important dates for your calendar:

Wed., Dec. 14: Report Cards sent home

Fri., Dec.16: Pajama Day and party 8:15-9:30

Mon., Dec. 19-Mon., Jan. 2: Winter break, no school

Tues., Jan. 3: First day back from break

I hope you all have a wonderful holiday!
