Weekly Overview October 27, 2014

Dear Families,
Please be respectful of our choice to leave Halloween festivities at home this year.  Our trip to the farm is strictly a fall, harvest, animal, life cycle study.  Please leave costumes at home or in backpacks.  Additionally, please keep candy at home.

We need chaperones for our trip this Friday.  Please let the classroom teacher know if you are able to attend.  I do have 5 parents, which is great, but more can come!!!

Our trip to the movie at Logan Center has been postponed.  Please look for further updates in the take home folder.  A giant thank you to all the parents who have responded in such a timely manner to our Harlem Dance Theater request.  If you have not paid for that trip yet please do so ASAP as we will lose our seats if we do not pay for it this week.

Thanks for all the snacks coming in!  Your children are enjoying!!!

Most importantly, please make sure that your child has a time to read by themselves each night, or that you make time to read with them!!!  I am seeing very happy readers in the classroom!!!

Thanks for all of your support! Jean Clement
