Our celebration continues on Friday. The students can wear their PJs or a Christmas sweater for Spirit week. The homework for tonight is bring a Holiday book to read with a friend tomorrow (don’t worry if you don’t have one, just bring a favorite book). I also told them that they can bring a blanket to build a fort during reading.

All aboard the 3rd grade Polar Express! Our party will be from 9:15-10:30 on Thursday, December 17th.  If you are interested in helping run a center on the day of the party, or are willing to donate items, please click on the Polar Express picture below (for the Volunteer Spot link, enter your email, and click next). We would like each child to send in $1.00 to cover the cost of the Christmas party.  We are planning crafts, games, and snacks related to the Polar Express theme and will be combining all of the 3rd grade classes.

Also, we will be having a gift exchange within our own classroom, please help your child select a gift of approximately $3.00-$5.00. Girls will choose a gift for a girl and boys will choose a gift for a boy. The gifts need to be wrapped and labeled to a “Girl” or “Boy.”  Please make sure that your child writes his/her name, so we know whom to thank. The children may start bringing them in as soon as you would like to send them.  Make sure your child’s gift is here by Monday, December 14.

If  you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.
