December 11, 2017
Letter of the Week
This week, we will be learning about the letter Jj!
Number 9 Sheet
December Reading Log
Show and Tell on Tuesdays and Thursdays
Homework is due (preferably) the following Monday.
Please label all homework items with your child's name. Any completed homework items will receive a sticker!
At the end of K4, we would like students to be able to consistently and correctly say and do the Sign of the Cross. We have been working on and will continue to work on the Sign of the Cross in the classroom, however, any additional practice outside of school would be very beneficial and helpful. If you could, please take some time to practice this with your child. You could even have them try practicing while looking at themselves in a mirror. :)
Wednesday Wireless Folder
If your child is the oldest or an only child, they will bring home a Wednesday wireless folder along with their daily folder. (It's a blue, plastic folder.) Please return the folder by the following Tuesday.
On Mondays, students can check out a book from the school library. These books will have a bar code to indicate that it is from the school library.
Library books are due the following Monday so that students can check out another book. If you're book is past the due date, I will send home a reminder from our librarian, Mrs. Bark!
Students are also able to check out books from our classroom library. These books will have the name Ceschi on the inside cover and will have a chevron card holder in the back. These can be brought back at any time.
There are no upcoming birthdays.
If you are volunteering for a party this year, please keep any activities (art project, game, etc.) around 15-20 minutes. Large group activities are preferred, but we can also make small group activities work. You are welcome to use any classroom art supplies including paper, scissors, glue, paint, etc. Please let me know ahead of time of your plans so that I can prepare for the day accordingly.

Thursday- Favorite Book (to be read to the class by Ms. Ceschi or a special guest)
Friday- Prize Box (receive certificate and choose a prize)
Please note this schedule of activities is flexible. I will provide the All About Me book to you the week before so you have time to complete. If you are having a special guest come in to read, please let me know ahead of time so we can coordinate a time for them to come in. You are also welcome to bring in a special snack to share with the class.
Please remember to wear shorts or leggings under uniform jumpers.
If you haven't done so already, please bring in an extra set of clothes to keep at school.

With the Advent Season upon us, I wanted to let everyone know that we will be having silent entry and a prayer service on Wednesdays during Advent (12/6, 12/13, and 12/20). During silent entry, I will have my candle lit and students are to enter the building quietly. There will be music playing over the speakers and the lights will be out. At 7:50am, we will walk down to the gym for the prayer service. Please prepare your child as necessary for silent entry days and please do your best to arrive on time in the morning. Thank you for your support!
