It’s nearly December! What a busy month it will be! The blog will be used to inform you of upcoming events. Be sure to write important dates in your calendar.
The memory verse for the next two weeks is from Luke 2:11. It will be quizzed on Friday, December 8.
Today in the town of David, a Savior has been born to you;
he is Christ the Lord.
I am not giving out a usual word sort this week. In Math, the students are learning different ways to represent numbers, including number words to 100. So our spelling words will be number words this week. Your child will bring home a list of number words that they should practice. Each child will bring home a list that is appropriate for their spelling development. Please email me or speak to me if you have any questions.
Gifts for the Manger
For the last 17 years, RCS Elementary Campus has been collecting items for the Crisis Pregnancy Centre. This local organization helps support mothers experiencing an unplanned or crisis pregnancy.
Our classroom will have a decorated box to collect new items that a baby could benefit from. (Gently used items can also be donated.) Suggested items are sleepers and outfits (newborn to 12 months), undershirts, bibs, blankets, towels, washcloths, and bottles. Socks, slippers, hats, shampoo, lotions, diapers, wipes, and toys are also appreciated. Food items such as powdered formula, baby cereal and jarred baby food is perfect. Moms can receive treats too: toiletries, magazines and treats.
Collecting starts on Monday, November 27th and ends on Thursday, December 7th.
Please encourage your child to participate by taking your child to the store and allowing them to select something to donate. We want to teach our children to share their blessings with those around them and this is an excellent opportunity to practice this.
Christmas Concert Practice Field Trip
Grade 2 students will be going to the RCS Middle Campus on Thursday, Nov. 30, 2017, from 1:30-2:45pm. The Grade 2 students have been chosen to represent the RCS Elementary Campus in a special song for the Christmas Concert. We will be rehearsing the song along with the Senior Choir and Middle School Choir, led by Mr. Grose. We will be leaving the school at 1:30pm and return by 2:45pm. If you have not yet approved your child’s participation in this trip please do so by Tuesday, Nov. 28, 2017.
December Scholastic Book Order
I have sent the December book order home today. I will collect orders and payment until Friday, December 1. If you would like to purchase a book as a Christmas gift, please let me know. I will email you when it arrives and you can pick it up from me, rather than sending it home with your child.
