Class Auction
Students have been earning class money all year and will be able to use that money to "bid" on items at our class auction on December 19th.  We will need donated items for that auction.  This is a perfect opportunity for students to "buy" gifts for family members, and themselves, with this hard-earned money. 
Please consider donating items that could be used for family presents for individuals of varying ages.  For example, a children's craft kit, or a small adult gift.

Christmas Program
The students will be performing, "Let it Snow", to a karaoke version of Dean Martin's classic.  The YouTube link for practice is here:  (383) Dean Martin - Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow! (Karaoke Version) - YouTube

"Sign and Return" on Student Assessments
To ensure that parents are seeing their student's grades on assessments, in 4th and 5th grade we ask parents to please sign and return all assessments (they will be stamped for your signature) in the student's green Friday folder when they return to school on Monday morning.  These will be returned to the student at the end of the 9 weeks. 
Thank you for your help with this!

Student Absences
When your student is absent from school, please send a note detailing the reason for their absence so that I may correctly mark attendance each day.
