I hope you had a nice break away. What a difference a year makes!! This time last year we experienced our first SNOW DAY when the weather smashed us with a winter storm! My brothers in CO and MN are feeling the worst of the storms this time. Be sure your information is on file with the office so you can be informed of school closings - especially this time of year. The Bears got another win, but am not sure what the Vikings or Packers will do. Did your team win??? Which NFL team will come out on top?? As I type this the Vikings and Pack are tied for the lead, in the race for the north that we are following on our graph.
We had a lot of fun on Friday, as the Pilgrims (us) visited the Native Americans in our Reading Buddies’ room. We really had a Charlie Brown Thanksgiving. Check out the pictures on the blog. The characters went home, and now we’ve made reindeer to put up aabove the lockers.
In addition to Peyton and Dusty this month, Gingerbread Fred will be making overnight visits to everyone’s household. He can only stay the night and will need to be returned the very next day. He will have a journal page that will need to be filled out. It can be dictated or written by the student telling about his adventures in three sentences or more.
