Friday Folder Time! (Nov 17)
Happy holidays! I hope everyone has a wonderful plan for the Thanksgiving break! As a reminder there is no school this coming week as we prepare for the Thanksgiving holiday, but parent-teacher conferences are on Monday and Tuesday. If you haven't already, please take some time this weekend to review your Report Cards and the progress reports sent home a couple weeks ago.
After we come back from break, it will be time to sign up for the Holiday Gift Exchange! There is an online signup form that should be filled out before December 6th. That way teachers can send home the gift assignments with Friday Folders giving parents a chance to shop for a gift over the weekend. So, put on your Secret Santa hat and make a jolly old time of it!
The giving tree is up! If you have a chance to go into the office and grab a tag off of the tree, or you can sign up online. The Kenzie & Dot Foundation has partnered with Evergreen Academy to gather holiday wishes from local families. By signing up to provide a gift from the list, you can help demonstrate to your child the importance of giving!
The holiday store is one of my personal favorite events. I was thrilled to have my child choose holiday gifts for friends and family all on her own. We enjoyed coming up with a budget, and even worked out a way for chores to earn money for the event. You can choose whatever you want to do for this, but there are many opportunities for you to extend the experience beyond just shopping. Take a look at the attached flyer if you want a reminder.
