Good morning parents,
 Can you believe there's a chance of snow?!? Stay warm over the next few days with the lower temperatures! Tomorrow's Show and Tell is for the letter F. We've been busy working on our Christmas recitations (Memory Treasures) for the Children's Christmas service on Thursday, December 21st. Just a reminder, the 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 giving directions about our Christmas party. If you didn't, this is what it said:

Hello parents!

Christmas is quickly approaching and to celebrate, we’ll have a Kindergarten Christmas party in our classroom on Thursday, December 21st. In years past, we have had the students participate in a book exchange, but this year we would like the kids to exchange Christmas ornaments! The directions are simple: 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. Thursday is a half day, so we’ll have our party right away in the morning, followed by a rehearsal for the children’s Christmas service that happens at 6:30 Thursday night at church, a fun activity in the gym, and a noon dismissal. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask.

   Next week we'll be working on the following:

** Christ light ** God gives His people food & God takes care of His people
** Memory Treasure ** Christmas Recitation: we'll be reviewing all of them!
** Math ** we'll be completing Unit 7 (Comparing Sets) and continuing with Unit 8 (Measurements)
** Super Kids ** Frits and the letter F
** Science ** Plants with Mrs. Carlovsky
** Social Studies ** Time for Kids
** Phonics ** Sight Word Packet #3

** PE ** Presidential fitness preparation with Mr. Lange
** Technology ** iPads with Mr. Lange

Bible verse of the week: When I am afraid, I put my hope in you. Psalm 56:3

Have a terrific day!
