Dec.11-15

We hope you enjoyed your weekend! We have a week with many exciting events!

This Tuesday, December 12th, 2017 we will be taking a group picture with Santa. Please have your kids come to school in Christmas attire. This time of year, Santa Claus is really busy, so please do your best to have your child come to school on this day. No make-up pictures will be available!




Our class Christmas celebration will take place this Friday, December 15thWe will celebrate this day by enjoying our annual gift exchange, watching a movie, and having Christmas breakfast and lunch. 



The students may come dressed in their pajamas, Christmas hats and bring their favorite stuffed animal.
It would be fantastic if the children can have popcorn while watching the movie. Let me know if you can contribute with this (popcorn bags or brown bags, juice,microwave popcorn)

     
   
The first grade gift exchange is a tradition in our class and we hope to have everyone participate this year. We ask that you buy a gift that would not be more than 200 Lps. Please bring the gift wrapped and labeled with GIRL (if you have a girl) or BOY (if you have a boy)These gifts will be numbered. Your child will pick a number out of a hat and they will get the present with the corresponding number. Please note that your child may or may not get the gift you bought.
     Please do not show your child the gift since we want this to be a surprise for them. Please send this gift as soon as possible. If one child does not bring a gift we will not be able to do this fun activity.
