 For our Christmas celebration we would kindly request the help of the rest of you that were not involved this time.

Please remember to send back progress reports. They went home on Friday in your child's folder. 

Don't forget to send in your 5lbs of sugar. These food items are part of the Christmas food baskets given to our support staff. 

This week your child will be inquiring into the following:

This week your child will be reviewing all the Word Wall words with various chants and activities. Due to the short week, we will not have a spelling challenge this week!

For Discovery School, it is very important to teach our students about sharing and helping others. Angelitos Del Dia is a perfect way to help show our kids just how easy this can be and how we can make a difference in our community.
"Angelitos del Dia" helps newborn babies born at Materno Infantil Hospital here in Tegucigalpa. They provide moms with newborn essentials (blankets, pajamas, socks, hats, wash cloths, towels, diapers, baby wipes, baby soap and baby shampoo). 
Your child will be taking an empty bag home this week. Please feel free to donate as many items as you wish by placing them in the bag. Send the bag back by November 28th.
Look at the link below so you can see what it is all about.

Please feel free to send any additional goodies that you want to share with our devoted staff, such as canned goods, instant soups, cookies and crackers, or anything else that does not require refrigeration.  Please send these items no later than Friday, December 2.
