Week 14

Sneak Peek of the Week

Week 14: November 28th-December 2nd

Dear Families,

I hope you had a restful Thanksgiving break!  

Brrrr!  It looks like we're officially in winter weather!  Please keep in mind that we plan to go outside for recess everyday.  Students are expected to bring warm weather items to school (jacket, gloves/mittens, hat, etc.).  If you are in need of warm weather items for your child, please contact me.  Also, I highly suggest writing your child's name in/on their items!  As you can imagine, items can get misplaced and it definitely helps to have names written inside or on the winter gear!


Global Minnesota-Classroom Connection

The Kindergarten teachers are teaming up with Global Minnesota to invite guests from different countries into our classrooms!  Beginning on Wednesday students will meet Svetlana and learn about Russia!  Through stories and photographs, Svetlana will walk students through a "Day in the Life" of a typical Russian elementary student.  Svetlana will share how students get to school, greet their teacher, subject areas studied and after school activities.  We will have two additional visits with Svetlana (December 7th and 14th) to learn more about Russian traditions!

Special Notes:

  • This Thursday (December 1st) is Sharing Night!  We hope you can join us at Webster beginning at 5:00pm for a night of sharing from all grade levels.  Kindergarten students will sing songs learned in Spanish!  Also, you can purchase books at Sharing Night from the Scholastic Book Fair!  The Scholastic Book Fair will open Tuesday afternoon and run through Friday.  A flyer went home last week with more details about the evening but, as always, contact me if you have any questions!
  • We are still collecting pieces of wood for our upcoming Science project!  If you have any small (3 inches x 3 inches) pieces of wood of any shape--we would greatly appreciate the donatation!  We'll begin our projects in the next week.
