The January calendar, and Guided Reading Schedule is now on our blog under the section "Classroom News". Both of these notes have already been sent home. I have also uploaded some pictures from our holiday sock hop, which can be found in the section, "Students". I regret not taking any photos on the day of our Christmas Concert because the students looked fantastic! Please e-mail me any pictures that you would be willing to share from the night. I would love to see them and share them on the blog! The students were spectacular performers and I was so proud of each and every one of them. A very exciting and fulfilling moment for a first year teacher, indeed!:)
Popcorn and Movie Day - As some of you may have heard from the students, our classroom raised the most money for our school fundraiser!! Our classroom raised over $13,000.00 so we won the Popcorn and Movie Day! One of students, Addison, was also the top seller in the entire school, raising over $4,000.00 in gift cards!! Since she was the top seller in the school and in our classroom, she won a $50.00 gift card to Toys R Us and was able to participate in an icecream sundae party! Again, I am so proud of our classroom and cannot wait to celebrate with them. Our classroom will be having our Popcorn and Movie party this Friday, January 24th. If you are able to, please send a "G" rated DVD movie to school on Friday. Please write your name on the DVD so that we know who it belongs to. We will then vote to decide which movie we will watch.
Beach Day is our next spirit day and will happen this Friday, January 24th. Students are encouraged to wear shorts, tank tops, bathing suits (over other clothing), and hats. Anything that you could wear to the beach will work for this special day. Please remember to have your child wear ski pants, a warm jacket, mitts, and toque over his/her beach wear so he/she can stay warm outside. If only the weather really was warm enough to lay on the beach!!
That is all I have to share for now. February is going to be a much busier month so I will let you know about all of the upcoming activities very soon!
Have a wonderful day and enjoy this beautiful weather while it lasts!
