Good morning!
   Brr! We've had some cooler temperatures and it's really starting to feel like Christmas(speaking as a Northerner!) The kids have enjoyed bundling up (I think!) and working on our Christmas countdown! Tomorrow's Show and Tell is for the letter E
   This Saturday, December 16th is a mandatory Christmas Service Rehearsal from 10:30-noon. Your child should be dropped off in the school gym by 10:30. If they're attending "Christmas for Kids", they'll be taken to the right place following our rehearsal and able for pick up at 3:30. If your child isn't attending "Christmas for Kids", pick them up from the school gym at noon. If you're unable to make it due to previous plans, excuse them via email.
   I sent a signup genius out last week for our Christmas party. If you haven't, please sign up!
   Just a reminder, December 21st is a half day, so the students need to be picked up at noon. The Christmas service is at 6:30, so please have them in the gym by 6:15. The dress code for that night is nice clothes (girls: dress and boys: shirt and tie). The church tends to fill up, so if you would like to come earlier to get a seat, that would be a good idea. The Kindergartners will be in the front row :) Hopefully you saw the note in your child's Red Folder last week giving directions about our Christmas party gift exchange:  purchase an ornament for your child to bring to school! If your child is a girl, buy a girl ornament and if your child is a boy, buy a boy ornament. It works out perfectly in our class for the girls and boys to exchange. The price shouldn’t exceed $5.00. Wrap the ornament and write To: Girl / From: Name of your kiddo.

  Next week we'll be working on the following:

** Christ light ** God gives his people the 10 Commandments 
** Memory Treasure ** Christmas Recitation: we'll be reviewing all of them!
** Math ** Unit 8 (Measurements)
** Super Kids ** Ettabetta and the letter E
** Science ** Plants with Mrs. Carlovsky
** Social Studies ** Time for Kids
** Phonics ** Sight Word Packet #3
** Center Focus ** Numbers 56-58
** Writer's Workshop ** Swimmy
** Music ** Christmas Music
** PE ** none due to half-day
** Technology ** none due to Christmas rehearsal

Bible verse of the week: By the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the measure of faith God has given you. Romans 12:3

Enjoy your Christmas break! We resume classes on Monday, January 8th and report cards will be sent home in your child's Red Folder.

Have a fantastic day!
