Holidays Around the World:
On Wednesday, December 21 we will be celebrating Holidays Around the World instead of having a traditional winter holiday party. Each 1st grade teacher will teach a lesson on one holiday. Students will rotate throughout the day, visiting each classrooms during the following times: 9:35-10:10, 10:15-10:50, 10:55-11:30, 1:30-2:05. I welcome parent volunteers to come in and help. Please sign up on my volunteer wiki http://derisvolunteers.wikispaces.com (please note that parent volunteers will not rotate with classes). Parent volunteers will stay with classroom teachers.
If you would like to come in during December or January and read a holiday or winter book, please send me an email to set-up a date and time. I will need to know what picture book you want to read and 3 clues that I can put up on the SMARTboard so students can guess who you are.
As always, you are welcome to come have lunch with your child. Students go out for recess at 11:42 and lunch is from 12:00-12:17.
