A Note From Our Principal,
We hope that you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with loved ones and we enjoyed celebrating with you all last month. As the winter holidays approach we have many special events planned for our students and families and look forward to spending time with you all. We’ve also enclosed important winter and holiday procedure reminders in this newsletter. Please read through it carefully and reach out if you have any questions or concerns. Happy Holidays!
Winter Clothing Reminder
If you have not already done so, please check your child’s cubby to ensure they have an extra set of weather appropriate clothes. Students need to come to school each day with a jacket and dressed warm enough to play outside for part of the day. If the weather is brisk we still go outside for active games and SPARK activities and want everyone to be able to participate!

Holiday Giving Project
*Revised 11/25*- Holiday Giving Campaign – Kick OFF!
As part of our effort to teach our student’s about the importance of giving this holiday season, we are going ALL OUT for our Holiday Giving Campaign this year! This year we are participating in TWO fundraising initiatives!
Our Holiday Giving Campaign Kicks Off today with Penny Boxes going home today! Any time you bring back your box, you will get a raffle ticket. We will be raffling off items from our Yankee Candle fundraiser at our Wrap Up Event!
All proceeds raised will go to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society
Our second initiative is our annual Toy Drive, Toys for Tots. Students can bring in new, unwrapped toys for children that are less fortunate. The Marine Corps will be on site December 13th to collect the toys.
*Revised 11/25* Holiday Giving Campaign – WRAP UP!
On December 13th @ 10:30am, we will be inviting a rep from the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society as well as a Marine from Toys for Tots to accept the donations. Our goal is to raise $500! If we do, on December 13th at our Teddy Bear Picnic Party we will do a SLIME-THE-PRINCIPAL EVENT!
Please have your children wear their PJ’s and bring a Teddy Bear and blanket for our culminating event! We will have cookies and juice outside on the playground.
