Week 5 September 5th-9th

Week 5

September 5, 2011

Dear Parents,

We hope you had a great weekend.We had a great week and we are ready for another week filled with learning and activities.
As part of the festivities for our Independence Day Celebration on Tuesday September 13th, we will be having a POT LUCK SNACK on Tuesday.

Each 1st  grader should bring a typical Honduran breakfast/snack to share with 5 classmates. We will be letting you know what your child should bring to school on that day.


The school is also encouraging children (and teachers) to wear “Honduran” clothes on this day. This may be a typical Honduran outfit (traje tipico), the National Soccer Team sports outfit, any creative dress up that is representative of Honduras, or simply blue and white clothes.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me!
