Welcome back! I pray that everyone had an enjoyable and restful Christmas. Thank you to all who helped with our classroom Christmas celebration. The children had a wonderful time, and I appreciate the effort that went into making it such an exciting day!
Our classroom is full of excited learners this year! I will be starting our Reading Parent program within the next month. If you are interested in becoming a reading parent, we must have all of your clearances on file in the office. I will send information home to those parents who were interested in being a reading parent only if we have your clearances on file. Thanks.
Boxtop collection for this month will be on Tuesday, January 12. Please keep clipping and sending those boxtops!
In Bible, we will finish our lessons on the life of Moses and the Ten Commandments.
Commandments 7-10 are due Thursday, January 14.
7. You shall not commit adultery.
8. You shall not steal.
9. You shall not give false testimony.
10. You shall not covet.
We will also be learning about how Joshua led the Israelites into the Promised Land. We will memorize Joshua 24:15.
"Choose this day whom ye will serve....But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord."
This will be due on Thursday, January 28.
On Monday, January 18, there will be no school, in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. During the previous week, we will have discussed the reason for remembering Martin Luther King, Jr., and all that he did for our nation.
We will be celebrating two birthdays in our class this month, as well as two half-birthdays.
Our birthdays (and half-birthdays) this month are as follows:
Bridget will have a birthday on January 15.
Thaddeus will have a birthday on January 15.
Drew will have a hallf-birthday on January 6.
Henry will have a half-birthday on January 9.
I neglected to add a half-birthday to the December newsletter last month.
Nevaeh had a half-birthday on December 29.
On January 21, we will have a school-wide Spirit Day. This month’s Spirit Day is Crazy Hat Day. Have fun!
Please send your child to school dressed appropriately for the winter weather. This includes a coat that can zipper/button up the front, a hat or hood, and gloves or mittens. We do go outside when it is cold.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me by note or email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Enjoy the winter weather, and stay warm!
