Polar Express Party Tomorrow!

Thanks to everyone who donated and/or volunteered for our Polar Express Party tomorrow. It should be lots of fun. Students can wear their pyjamas all day. They should have shoes and jackets, etc to go out for recess though. They can wear slippers in the classroom or just shoes. 
The actual party begins around 1:00pm. We will start with the Polar Express book, then have our hot chocolate and snacks and then finish with a secret video.

Friday is a dress up day. Students can wear clothes with Christmas colours. If they do so, the school is asking for a donation of a loonie or toonie for charity.

Friday is the last day of school until after Christmas Vacation and it is an early dismissal at 12:15pm.

Tale of the Tape

Congratulations to all the Grade 2 class for winning the Tale of the Tape. I know the Grade Two's were very excited to hear that they won. And my hearing is almost all the way back now from their Thank you to all the families who helped donate food. Not only does this make for an exciting day for our class, but it helps families in need. We will have our pizza party in January. I'm planning it for Tuesday, January 19th. If you see this before ordering hot lunch, you do not need to order it on that day. As some orders have already come in, we could ask the coordinators if we can switch. Let me know if you need to change the date. I hope they are accommodating. 

Tomorrow is the Choir performance at Aberdeen. For those who are in choir and have hot lunch, most likely they will get it delivered in time, but there is a chance that it is late so students might want to bring something as a backup just in case. 

Friday is the Dress Rehearsal for the Christmas Concert. Students should come to school dressed in their costume, but bring their uniform to change into later. They also need a bag to keep their costume in so that we will have it for Monday. It will stay at school over the weekend.

Thank you to everyone who signed up to bring something in for our Polar Express Party. We seem to have enough right now. It's looking like it will be great. I hope many of you are able to join us.

Polar Express

In December, the Grade Two class will have our annual Polar Express Celebration. The date will be Wednesday, December 16th.

We get to wear our pajamas to school all day on Tuesday just like the little boy in the story. The children can also wear their bathrobes and slippers as long as they have outdoor shoes and jackets for recess and lunch time.

 You are all welcome to join us. We will need a few volunteers to help make the hot chocolate and organize the goodies while I am reading the story.

We would also appreciate it if anyone could contribute one item to our celebration. We need hot chocolate, marshmallows, whipping cream, candy canes, cups, paper plates and other goodies. We will have a sign up sheet just below. Please email me and I will update it so we will know what we still need. Thank you.

We will start shortly after 1:00 with a reading of the book and then we will have the hot chocolate and goodies. About 2:15 we will watch a "secret" video that I know the children will love and the theme is very similar to the magic of the Polar Express.
