Dear Parents,

It’s holiday homework!!  We read “A Turkey for Thanksgiving “today.  It is a wonderful story about a family of moose that want to invite a turkey to come and have Thanksgiving dinner with them.  Of course, he thinks they want to eat him instead.   So…I am asking you to help your child think of a disguise for the enclosed turkey.  Please cut out the turkey and help your child DISGUISE him as a different animal or character in hopes of avoiding being caught for Thanksgiving Day dinner!  Please use items found in your home to create your turkey’s disguise.  Some suggestions for disguising the turkey may be: a sheep, a ballerina, a farmer, Hello Kitty, a cat, Dora, Superman, Skylander, a Pilgrim, or Indian etc.  The ideas are endless. You may want to cut it out and glue on heavier paper.  Please return these turkeys sometime this week.  Good luck and enjoy working on this project.

Interims will be going home on Monday, Nov.26th.   Parent conferences will be on Nov. 27th. We are sending the forms for you to sign up for a conference this week instead of next week.  The week of Nov. 19th is only two days for us! I will not be sending home a newsletter next week.  If you are unable to make it on the 27th, I will be happy to meet with you at another time.  I am here most afternoons until at least 5:00.  Please let me know. 

Our poetry focus for this week will be: I’m a Little Scarecrow.

*TES will be collecting canned goods and non-perishable items to be distributed to community families in need.  We have a box in the classroom for the collections.  Your child may bring in an item to add to this worthy cause. We will be collecting until Dec. 14th.

* Dec. 3rd-7th- The Kris Kringle Shop opens!!  This is a PTO fundraiser for the children here at TES. Your child may get all of his/her holiday shopping done right here at school!  Each item will cost the children $2.00. Volunteers will gift wrap the items and send them home by your child on the day of the purchases!  The shop will need volunteers to come in and work, so if you are free any morning that week, I know the PTO would really appreciate it.

*It’s almost here!  It is time for us to be thinking of the candy houses that the Kindergartners make during holiday time!  If you are out and about and would like to purchase the items needed for the houses, please do so.  Each child will need to bring in one box of graham crackers, one tub of vanilla frosting and any candies and/or cereals to put on the houses.  We will begin constructing them right after Thanksgiving.  Some candy or cereal to consider: M&M’s, Skittles, mints, gum drops, colorful gum, colored marshmallows, Fruit Loops, candy canes, Twizzlers etc.  The possibilities are endless.  You may send in these items at any time.

Be sure to mark your calendar for upcoming events occurring in December:

December 7th- Evening with Santa at 6:00

December 10th- Winter Music Program (grades3-5) 6:30.

Thanks and have a wonderful week!

Mrs. Williams
