I hope the children enjoyed the trip on Wednesday. I know I did. The movie was good and the weather couldn’t have been better for our lunch on the boardwalk. I think it was a nice experience to be with the other downstairs students. The third graders sat with our class on the bus and were very helpful with seat belts … The children are now pointing out their new friends to me in the hallway when we pass.
The week ahead is very busy for St. Joseph’s School. Please don’t forget the Christmas Show is Tuesday at 8:45 am. The children are to dress up for the show. If your daughter is wearing something in her hair, Mrs. McCarthy has asked that it not be too big. She doesn’t want it to block another child’s face. If you are facing the stage, our class is on the left hand side.
The children will be performing the show for the entire school at a rehearsal as well. They will be attending the 3rd, 4th and 5th grade show, the 6th, 7th and 8th grade show and the piano recital this week too. They will be meeting with their 8th grade buddies on Thursday morning to make a tiny paper nativity set to bring home and to give them the ornaments that we are making for them. Then we will be walking the the hospital to sing Christmas Carols in the lobby and deliver Christmas cards the children made for the patients. They will also have birthday cake for Jesus in the afternoon. In between I will be reviewing the Big Book of Blending, and addition. I hope you have some time to review over the break.
Please don’t forget that Friday is a half day with dismissal at 12:00. I hope you enjoy the Christmas vacation with your family and friends and especially your little ones. This is a special time as a parent and one that goes quickly. Enjoy it.
