Good Afternoon & Happy Second Week of Advent!
I hope everyone had a nice weekend. We had a marvelous Monday today and the class worked very hard!
I will not be in school tomorrow as I will be down in Newark for an all-day workshop, or "Teacher School" as I told the kiddos. Mrs. Matthews and Mrs. Nowel will be here tomorrow. If you have any changes in dismissal or need to contact them during the day tomorrow, please reach out directly to Mrs. Nowel via Class Dojo, as she does have the app on her phone and can see it right away.
A few important papers went home today in homework folders. One is a permission slip for our Christmas Breakfast that will be happening next Friday morning. Please be sure to fill out the permission slip and return to school asap.
The second important notice that went home is a letter explaining our Kindergarten Christmas Gift Exchange. We do ask to please send in gifts by next Thursday the 19th. Thank you so much for your support, we are looking forward to an awesome celebration with your children.
