Circle Letter 12/12/14

December 12, 2014

Dear Families,
Another great and varied week together…our class has worked well on a variety of projects that are going on, as well as made a cloud in a bottle, and explored the water cycle and water run-off.  Be sure to get the scoop from your kiddo.
The whole third grade will take part in a Winter Solstice celebration in the morning of Tuesday 12/23, rotating to different classrooms. Please be on the look out for the notice with different ways you might consider helping. We are in need of some supplies and helping hands.
Also our class we will have a small holiday celebration that afternoon, 12/23, in our classroom.  We are asking for each student to bring in a small classroom “supply gift”, for the kids to use in the classroom in 2015.  Items like Sharpie markers, dry erase markers, art supplies (especially water colors) glue sticks, glitter, pencils, erasers, soft tissues, paper towels, books, cards, stickers, music CD, a read aloud coupon from a parent, big snack bag to share etc… Please wrap the gift, as we do a pass-a-long game for an unknown person to open. Lastly, we would love to have some holiday fruit or homemade treats to offer to the kids for that Tuesday afternoon. Interested??!  Please send in a note or an e.mail in any way you might be able to help with any one of these events.  And as always, thank you for your support!
            And at long last…  the Report Card that has been placed in the portfolio, is coming home today. We hope you find the portfolio informative and interesting. Lots of “evidence” of learning, thinking, working, and creating.
Enjoy the weekend…
