Approaching Winter Break
Time flies during this busy time of the year. We look forward to seeing you at Winter Celebration on the 15th. We also invite parents to join us for some winter caroling on the afternoon of the 16th. If you would like to meet your child's caroling group while we are out and about, let Shannon know and she will help coordinate. We'd love to have parents join us in spreading some cheer and kindness. Also, please let advisors know if you will be missing any extra school around the scheduled break so classes can plan accordingly. Happy holidays!

Baby, It's Cold Outside
During these weeks of below zero temperatures, students will stay indoors for recess until the temperature is above zero. That said, we may still be outside when it is quite chilly and we so appreciate well bundled kids. Even the walk up in the mornings can be biting without protective clothing.

Trimester Reports
By now you should have received your child's trimester report in the mail. Please let Sam Kitchen know if you did not receive it yet. If you have questions about individual classes, please contact that teacher directly.

Acts of Kindness

Students are keeping track of kind acts so we can be aware of the small ways we can make a big difference. Look for the buckets in the hall and feel free to stop and read some of these kind acts.

Appreciations
Thank you to Betsy, Marina, and Meladi for helping out with snacks and rags this week. On December 16th we will be grateful for Colleen G. and Deanna for helping with snacks and Amanda for washing rags (over break!). On the week we return (1/6) Colleen and Cindy D. will help with snacks and Norene will do rags. Thank you parent volunteers. A special thanks to Meladi for providing delicious baked goods for the teachers!
