 Dear Students and Parents,

     Our Field Trip information is out!  We're going to Sea World on Wednesday, December 6.  Your child should have brought home the important papers you'll need concerning the trip. Please get the forms and monies in soon.  Remember to hand in all your papers needed to be a part of the chaperone drawing.

     Your child should have given you my November newsletter that has some good reminders.

     If you have any questions about school, don't hesitate to email or write a note in your child's agenda.  I will quickly get back to you. We will work together to see new growth this year! 

     Have a great month!

                                                                              Patti Balla

Box Tops for Education: Our class is collecting Box Tops for Education and could really use your support. Just look for the Box Tops logo on hundreds of grocery and household product, clip the label, and send them in to our classroom. We are trying to earn "free" money for our school (each label is worth 10 cents). So before you throw away any of your used items, please check to see if there is a box top label you can clip for our class. Thank you in advance for your support!
