    Dear Families,

     Thank you so much for the very generous gift. Your kindness and thoughtfulness are very much appreciated. But what I appreciate most of all is the opportunity to spend my days with your children.  Have a Wonderful Holiday Season and a Safe Healthy New Year!

    We LOVE to celebrate birthdays but there are some guidelines to follow.

    We are a NUT FREE classroom so please keep that in mind when sending in treats for your child's birthday.

    All birthday treats need to be in to school by our lunch period.

    As per school district rules-- NO BIRTHDAY INVITATIONS CAN BE GIVEN OUT IN SCHOOL! 



    Be A Bucket Filler

    In our classroom, we will work hard to be "Bucket Fillers", not "Bucket Dipper"! But what are "Bucket Fillers" & "Bucket Dippers"?

    We're going to read the book, Have You Filled a Bucket Today?

    This book tells the story how everyone, all over the world, carries an invisbile bucket with them. The way that we treat others can fill their buckets when we are kind, or we can dip from their buckets when we use unkind words and actions. Other people can fill or dip from our buckets too.


    Help Us Earn Rewards and $$ for our School!

    Please continue to send in Box Tops.  Help our school get rewards & our class too!
