It’s hard to believe we only have 1 more week till Christmas break. The students are getting excited. We were able to see the 2nd and 4th grade musical this week and the students enjoyed it. Just a few reminders. The students have a social studies test on Wednesday, Dec. 18th and the Mouse and Motorcycle project is due on Thursday, Dec. 19th. The information about the project went home on Monday with your child. The students can turn it in early if they are done with it before Thursday. This is part of their 2nd quarter reading grade so everyone needs to do the project. Please let me know if you have any questions. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. It’s hard to believe it is December and we will be done with the 2nd quarter soon. We were able to go down to the church this week and receive the sacrament of Reconciliation on Wednesday. It is always a sight to see the students with big smiles after receiving this sacrament. We enjoyed our party with Miss Wenck today. The students voted on ice cream and Miss Wenck also surprised them with a gift and a cookie cake! She enjoyed the cards and books the students brought her. We will miss her so much!
In the Friday folder this week is the students Snail Mail Assessment score sheet for the Language Art Assessment. It is stapled to the rough draft. The final copy was sent to Home Instead for the letters to be distributed to their clients so that is why you won’t be able to see it. You will see that just the letter is part of an English grade and the letter/card combo they decorated is part of the reading grade. Let me know if you have any questions and have a wonderful weekend enjoying this nice weather.

Monday the students enjoyed learning about owls from the Papio NRD. Miss Kay came in and talked with the students about the barn owl and the shrieking owl. Tonight you can ask your child to tell you some of the cools facts they heard about. I have attached some pictures of the owls.
Nov. 26th is a dress down day and the social studies test. I am so thankful for all my students and having you to support me in their learning. I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving.
We have also ran out of band-aids so if anyone would like to donate some we would greatly appreciate it.
