It has been a great school year so far. We have been enjoying the nice weather and trying to spend time outside as much as possible.
Even though this year Halloween was not a usual one, we still had a great fun day. The Halloween Parade was filled with so much fun, laughter, singing and dancing. All the students came in dressed up in their Halloween costumes, and they all looked adorable. We really appreciate your help and cooperation.
We would like to thank you for being indulgent and helping us to make sure our school is the safe place as it could be. Please continue to communicate with us. If you or any of your family members are traveling, or you or any of your family members have been in contact with someone who has tested positive for Covid19, notify the school as soon as possible. If your child is not feeling great, has cold symptoms, sniffles, coughs or runny nose, please keep your child at home. Most of parents have been doing a great job about this and we really appreciate it.
Over the past two weeks we have been learning about kindness, being polite, and friendliness. Students have been practicing even more the “Magic Words” and noticing and acknowledging each other’s kind and polite actions.
Our theme for this upcoming two weeks is “Being Thankful”
We will be talking/ learning about Thanksgiving Holiday, about what are we thankful for. We will continue with the letter of the week, and the numbers of the week.
