NEW THIS YEAR: Class Baskets! Instead of assigning each class a theme, we've assigned each class a colour!  (If you are looking for inspiration, a brown basket could contain chocolate, a fur pillow, a bag of coffee, and a wooden candleholder.)

We need a parent volunteer from each class to collect items for the basket. The only rules are that everything should be your assigned colour and the basket should have a minimum value of $75. Parents can either ask for contributions of items and then assemble the basket or ask for financial contributions (similar to what some classes do for a collective teacher gift at the end of the year) and then purchase the items themselves.

Kindergarten - Pink
Grade 1 - Violet
Grade 1/2 - white
Grade 2/3 - yellow
Grade 3 - orange
Grade 4L - green
Grade 4W - blue
Grade 5 - red
Grade 6 - black
Grade 6/7 - silver
Grade 7 - gold

All volunteer hours count towards your Parent Participation Hours (not including work bee hours).

The dress rehearsal for our Christmas Concert is on Monday.  Students are asked to bring in their white shirts and bottoms for Monday.  Please label the clothes as I will not know whose clothes belong to who. 

Performances on Tuesday are at 1/7 pm.  Students will be excused from the classroom after each performance.  Please pick your child(ren) from his/her classroom.

A BIG thanks goes out to Mrs. Paez who sewed 27 wings for our costume.  Thank you!!

Reminders for next week:
- Tuesday - Christmas Concert
- Wednesday - Pajama Day and Hot Lunch (for those who ordered)
- Friday - noon dismissal and last day of classes for winter break

We started practicing the staging for the Christmas Concert (Dec. 19 at 1 pm and 7 pm) today.  The primary concert looks good.  Can't wait to see it when all the kids are in their costumes.  Please remember that it is an expectation that students attend and participate in both performances. 

Students are finishing up their boxes and will be sharing them with the class next week.

Please remember to send in any hamper items.  If you need ideas please the cards posted on Class Dojo, which are just a few of the items we need.

The Week Before the Last Week of School

This is a 'crazy' time for us as we are preparing for the Christmas Concert; routines are off/disrupted, we are in and out of the classroom and there is little work getting done.

Reminder that we will need the Christmas Concert costume for next week - white t-shirt and pants.  The wings are being worked on - courtesy of the sewing talents of Mrs. Paez (thank you!!) - and we will do yellow face paint for the dove noses.

Spelling test this week is a review.  This will be our last test of this year.  20 words, 4 words from each list (10 word family words/10 NN words).

Hamper Items

An email was sent home this week about Christmas Hamper items.  Students were each given a tag (red or green) on Tuesday. If your child does not have one please let me know and I will give one to him/her.  The different cards are also posted on Class Dojo.  Please choose one item on ONE card to donate (or more if you are able).

Spelling test tomorrow - short 'e' words

Food Bank Mass tomorrow - it is the last one of this 2017 year.
