We had a fun and exciting week.  With Christmas holidays only a couple weeks away, we have made a few Christmas crafts to decorate the classroom. (pictures forthcoming)  In Socials we started our study of Christmas around the world, developing an awareness of different language and culture, particularly as related to Christmas.  We will be learning how to say Merry Christmas in different languages.  Our first  country we looked at was Mexico.  “Feliz Navidad!”  Here are some of their Christmas traditions that we talked about: pinatas, poinsettias, los posasdas (parade), 3 King’s Cake, cactus Christmas trees.  Each day this week and next we will take a look at a different country.  Monday we will be looking at Christmas in Australia!

From the music teacher:

Wednesday Dec. 15 is Christmas Sweater Day at Highroad.  This is perfect for our annual Christmas Concert performance.  Many students have asked, “But what if I don’t have a Christmas sweater?”.  Good question.  Here are the options for the Christmas concert:

  1. a long-sleeved Christmas themed Tshirt, sweatshirt or sweater
  2. a long-sleeved plain T-shirt, sweatshirt or sweater
  3. a long-sleeved Tshirt, sweatshirt or sweater turned inside out, if there is a design that doesn’t fit our Christmas theme.

Any choice of jeans or dark pants/skirts are preferable to complete the students’ ensemble.

NOTE: we hope that every student has one of these options, as we would like to avoid having one or two students stand out from the class because they are wearing their uniform for this concert.

We made it through this short week of school!  After an unexpected week off, it was awesome to be back at school.  Thanks for your patience and flexibility as things kept changing a bit with what is going on around the school these days. As the countdown to Christmas break approaches, we have a few busy weeks ahead of us.  I look forward to connecting with you tomorrow for our Parent/Teacher interviews.  I will be sending you a link to your email (on file) and once you receive it, simply click on it to connect with me.

Salvation Army Food Drive – begins Wednesday, December 1st

  • We are setting a school goal of $6000 by December 15th 
  • if we reach our goal, we will have an Animal Dress Up day when we return after Christmas break
  • We are inviting students and families to DONATE money to the food drive as the Salvation Army has more buying power than we do. All donations go to the SCHOOL OFFICE.

Right now, the Salvation Army can use all the money they can get as they are taking the lead on meal efforts for flood relief, providing extra supplies for those affected by this current situation, and then have a list of those already on the list for hampers and other needs this holiday.
