Dear Parents,

I look forward to meeting and discussing with you your student’s achievements, efforts, and progress made during the first trimester.  Conferences take place on Wednesday and Thursday in the pm, Dec. 11th-12th.  I hope you take the time to review your student’s portfolio and reflections about some of their work. They have so much to be proud of and so do you!  It has been a pleasure getting to experience your student’s special gifts.

December is full of fun, new challenges, activities, and of course, the blessed waiting for our Lord.  Our 3rd grade Posadas is on Tuesday, December 17th.  Please look for further information about this special event and how you can help.  I hope you can attend also.  We also have the School Christmas Concert on the evening of the 18th and wrap up our final school days before 2020 at our School Christmas Program on the morning of the 20th.

Information about the December book report is going home.  The students are to enjoy a book of poetry and do a rehearsed reading or recitation on a selected poem from their book on Wednesday, December 18th.  We are also writing and reading poems in the classroom.  January’s book report will be on a mystery book (a nice Christmas gift, perhaps!).

Lastly, thank you to those parents that helped with our Arboretum field trip last month.  We will be going to the Museum of the American West on Thursday, January 16th.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  I am truly thankful for all of you and your children.

Happiest of holidays to you and yours,

Sue Arnold
