Week 19-Room 104 Receives Grade Reports and Celebrates the Holidays

Posted by monica.gallagher | Uncategorized | Posted on December 12th, 2010

Shalom!

Grade reports will be sent home Thursday in your child’s folder. Please read the report with your child and complete the homework page that goes with it. I know there will be lots to do this week, but please make sure to sign one copy of the report and return it along with the report card envelope in folders for Friday.

There will be no hardback story or tests this week. However, I strongly advise that you continue to read to/with your child and keep them writing over the holiday break. We will have several holiday surprises and activities. Our Christmas celebration will be Friday, December 17 at 11:00. Please send a present for your own child to open during the party. We will be making sugar cookies and sampling Christmas Wassail. Please feel free to drop in and enjoy any of our festivities!

I hope your family has a wonderful holiday break with a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

It’s hard to believe, but half of our school year is coming to a close as School Week 18 brings the end of the Second Grading Term. Report cards will be sent home next Thursday, December 16. If you would like to discuss your child’s progress, I would be happy to schedule a conference. Please call the office or you may reach me directly at school during my planning 1:45-2:30.
