Songfest will shortly be upon us. This wonderful presentation is going to take place on Thursday, December 6th at 10:30 a.m. in our school gym. This year, the theme chosen for Song Fest is “Carnaval” and the first graders are going to sing the song “En el Fondo Del Mar”. Your child may wear a costume from any sea animal. Some ideas are: a crab, a shark, a whale, a seashell, a seahorse, a mermaid, a jellyfish, etc. If you have any questions please contact Ms. Pamela Cruz.

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 150 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.
Please send in 100 Lempiras for a special Christmas project and a small surprise for the students by next Friday December 7th.
Our class Christmas celebration will take place on Friday, December 14th. We will celebrate this day by enjoying our annual gift exchange, watching a movie, and having Christmas breakfast.
It would be fantastic if the children can have popcorn while watching the movie. Let us know if you can contribute with some microwave popcorn bags and juice.
The students may come dressed in their pajamas, Christmas hats and bring their favorite stuffed animal.
This week we would love to decorate our Christmas tree. We will be making some ornaments with the students in class. If you would like to send some ornaments with your child they are more than welcome. Also, if you have any lights that you would like to share with our class please send them in. We will return all the decorations in January.
Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos (NPH) is an international organization that takes in abandoned and orphaned children, providing a home and education. Here in Honduras, the NPH organization provides for over 500 children in at large ranch near La Venta and home in Tegucigalpa for severely handicapped children. While many children at the ranch have aunts, uncles, or grandparents that come to visit them and can provide some Christmas gifts, some children at a ranch have no family to visit. It is these children, whom we would like to provide for this Christmas. On the first floor of the administration office, a NPH Giving Tree will be set up. If you wish to participate, choose a paper tree that has a child’s information about his/her size for shoes and socks. Purchase the new tennis shoes and socks and return them to Mrs. Agurcia’s Room (Room. 7) by Tuesday, December 11th, with the tree tag taped to it. Thank you for giving this Christmas!
