Circle Letter 12/12/15

Dear Families,
Big round of applause to our Thursday night concert performers.!!  Great songs and music!  What an incredible turn out!  We sure hope you enjoyed the show… the singing, the readings and especially the ukuleles!  Woohoo let’s hear it for the Hokey Pokey. Thank you for coming out and sharing the evening with our Mitchell School kiddos.
Our class has worked well on a variety of projects this week… a new weather unit, persuasive commercial writing, nonfiction text feature hunting, but the best one being our classroom door decorating.  Swing by and check it out.  We also said farewell to Clara… we will miss her!
At long last the Report Card will be placed inside the portfolio, which will be coming home on Monday. We hope you find the portfolio informative and interesting. Lots of “evidence” of learning, thinking, working, and creating. Please take time to go through it with you child!
We will have a small holiday celebration the afternoon of 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 2016.  Items like fine tip dry erase markers, Sharpie markers, art supplies, glue sticks, glitter, pencils, erasers, soft tissues, paper towels, books, cards, stickers, a read aloud coupon from a parent, big snack bag to share etc… Please wrap/bag 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 and homemade treats to offer to the kids for that Wednesday afternoon. Interested??!  Please send in a note or an e.mail in anyway you might be able to help. And as always, thank you for your support! And thanks also for participating in our Rice Public Library fundraising… we collected $62.00 and will present it to our awesome library this weekend!                          Enjoy the weekend…
