We had so much fun on Friday during our Fall Celebration. We created cute bear magnets, played pin-the-nose-on-the pumpkin, decorated leaves and bowled with candy corn! Huge thanks to Mrs. Gooden and Mrs. Director for their help. We could not have had so much fun without you!
Another huge thank you to the Sharfmans and Goodens for recent classroom donations. We will certainly use the items you contributed to make learning fun and engaging! Please check out my blog for more ideas from our wish list.
On Tuesday, we will participate in CTES’s Turkey Trot. It’s a time for students to get outside, get some fresh air and exercise a bit! Parents are invited to come walk/jog/run as well. I’m sorry, siblings that do not attend CTES are not able to come. The weather looks good, but please be sure to dress your child in layers and shoes for walking/running.
Speaking of dressing your children, please have your child practice putting on his/her gloves and mittens. Have your student practice zipping, hooking, buttoning and fastening their coats and pants. I’ve shown students how to zip up, then down when a zipper gets stuck. That often does the trick.
Thank you for sending in a change of clothes for your child. We seem to have been having a number of accidents lately. Please remind them to keep the clothes in their backpack. Also remind them that if I’m not talking, they can go without asking permission. They should also remember to go BEFORE it is an emergency. Finally, if I am teaching/talking to the class, remind them to use our “secret bathroom signal” when raising their hand so I can nod them on without them having to wait too long.
11/12-11/26- Food Collection for the Henrico Christmas Mother. This program relies on hundreds of volunteers and thousands of donors to provide food to more than 6,000 Henrico County residents who need our help during the holiday season. Each class will be competing with each other to see who brings in the most non-perishable and can goods. The teacher of the winning class on each grade level will be crowned during the Turkey Court the week after Thanksgiving. We’re already off to a great start. Thank you so much for your donations.
Finally, please have a safe and restful Thanksgiving with your friends and family.
