Wednesday – December 20th is the last day of school before winter break and it is a minimum day.  All Primary students will attend school 8:15-12:00.  We would like to invite all parents to come to school at 11:30 AM that day to watch our students perform a couple of songs followed by a cookie potluck.  We ask that parents attending bring a dozen cookies for our cookie potluck (nut free).

 

Thank you – Thank you to all of the parents that chaperoned our field trip to the Nutcracker last week.  We had enough volunteers so that each adult chaperoned no more than two students, so everyone had a hand to hold when crossing the streets!  The students really enjoyed the ballet.

Week in Review

Last week we introduced letter O and sigh word “is.” Montessori jobs introduced were: matching CVC words with picture mats, smelling bottles, and color box 4. On Friday they made art with finger print painting, did a craft using cookie cutters, paint and glitter to decorate a bag and they did a Santa directed drawing.
