TUESDAY NEWS

Secret Santa, Christmas Party, Dress Up Days and Goats

 

Happy Christmas to each and every one of you!  It is so much fun around here.  We have lights up in the classroom, elves hiding in different places each day and Christmas music playing while students work.  It truly is a magical time of the year!

A few announcements…..
 
Wednesday, December 19th – Noon Dismissal
Wednesday, December 19th – High School Applications Due to the Office
 
8th GRADE SECRET SANTA
Each student picked a name out of a hat to be a Secret Santa for this week starting on Thursday.  They have a paper with the student’s name and a different item for each day.  Thursday is Favorite Snack, Friday Favorite Drink, Monday Favorite Candy, Tuesday Favorite Breakfast Item and Wednesday Something Random.  They should not spend more than a dollar or two on each item.  It has worked best in the past to have your child purchase everything and keep them in their locker so that they don’t forget to bring a gift each day.  🙂
CHRISTMAS DRESS UP DAYS
Thursday – Christmas Socks and Tights
Friday – Christmas Hats and Antlers
Monday – Winter Pajamas
Tuesday – Christmas Ties, Scarves and Jewelry
Wednesday – All out Christmas (ugly sweaters and red and green)
CHRISTMAS PARTY –
Next Week on Wednesday
A big thank you to Stephanie Jensen for helping me to coordinate a Christmas Party for the 8th graders next Wednesday.  We are planning to have a Nerf gun fight in the Lowers (if students bring in their Nerf guns) and then a Gingerbread House building contest.  It should be tons of fun. 🙂
GOATS
Every year, the middle school students raise money to buy goats and chickens through World Vision for hungry people in other countries.  As usual, I have encouraged students to bring in their own money (or to work to raise money) as we all know that parents have plenty of expenses this time of year.  🙂  We will be collecting money until Christmas Break (last day to turn in will be Wednesday, December 19th).
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.  And Merry Christmas to each of you!
Joyfully,
Mrs. Sara Kunkel
