Week of Jan 3: Lesson Plans

HIGHLIGHTS


CHRISTMAS CONCERT   

Congratulations on a great Christmas Concert.   It was beautifully done, and all the speakers and singers were wonderful.  If you missed it, please try to see it because it is fantastic.

CHRISTMAS GIFTS 

Thank you to all the parents that contributed to the Christmas Fund.  We greatly appreciate the generous gift.  Please forgive us if you don’t get a personal thank-you card for any other gifts that were given.  Sometimes names are not on the gift or the name comes off the gift, or, in my case, my list was accidentally thrown away by a family member.

SPIDER REPORTS 

Pick up your spider report from your desk when you come on Monday for books.  These reports will have to be presented on Zoom during our science class this week.  Be prepared to read it and show your pictures.  Keep this report and give it to Mrs. Buchanan for grading upon your return to school next week.

EPIPHANY SHOE

The pattern for the shoe will be in your packet when you pick up your books and supplies for Zoom.  Decorate it, put it together and bring it to school on Monday, January 10, when you return to school.  Shoestring is optional.

READING

Make sure you have a book with you at all times. Hopefully, Santa brought you one for Christmas.

PENCIL PACKS

Please make sure you clean out your pencil packs and add new sharpened pencils and new colored pencils.
