Miscellaneous:

  • Monday, Oct. 26 – No School
  • Friday, October 30 – Fall Party

This year for our fall celebrations we are looking forward to having parties in our classrooms much like in years past, but this year will be slightly different in a few ways.

      1. Parents and volunteers will not be able to attend.  (We will miss you!)
      2. Snacks need to be store-bought and individually packaged We don’t have any food allergies in our classroom this year.
      3. Donated items (supplies, snacks, etc.) need to be sent in 24 hours in advance (or more). 

Look for an email later this week that will include a sign-up for snacks and other items needed for our celebration.

Like in previous years, we will be welcoming your children to wear costumes if they wish. One change this year is that children will be able to wear their costumes to school and wear them the whole day.  The intent behind this is to limit children gathering in the restrooms to change and to limit the number of children needing assistance from teachers and staff to get into their costumes. We invite you to send your children in a costume that includes no weapons or gore, and easily allows your child to participate in regular school routines and procedures. There will not be any masks other than COVID-19-related face masks allowed. There will not be time given to dress or apply makeup as in years past. 

Please consider the questions below when deciding on a costume:

    • Can they take it off themselves to use the bathroom?  
    • Can they fit in their seat at their desk? 
    • Can they go down the slide or sit in the swings?  

We ask that you save bulky, inflatable, or extravagant costumes for home use, and dress in a fun and simple costume for the school day.  Fall or pumpkin t-shirts are a great alternative as well. 

My plan is to weave in festive activities and embrace the fun throughout the day.  We are thrilled at the opportunity to celebrate with your children and look forward to creating another fun and memorable school event for them.

  • S.O.A.R. Kickoff!
    • This week, we launched our PBIS OUTSTANDING TICKETS. Students went on a TOP SECRET MISSION to find two SOAR agents! The scavenger hunt ended back in our classroom with students needing to find an Outstanding taped underneath a table. When individuals or the whole class earns an Outstanding ticket for excellent behavior or SOARing in some way, everyone benefits! We’ll celebrate when we reach a total of 15 Outstandings!
