Special Notes and Reminders:

· We are collecting non-perishable food items now through December 17th.  These items will be used to put together food baskets for families in need by the St. John’s Stewardship Board. Any donations can be put in the “Food Basket Donations” box in our classroom. Thank you in advance for your donations.

· Mid-quarter reports will be sent out via email by 5:00 pm on Tuesday. If you do not receive it, please let me know.

· An Advent devotional, sponsored by the St. John’s Stewardship Committee, was sent home today with the youngest child of each family. This is a great devotional to share daily with your family during the Advent season.

· The Reading Log that was sent home last Friday is for this week and next week. It is due on Friday, December 3.

· Review and practice the multiplication facts with your child at home.

· As we move into the season of winter, please make sure that your child brings appropriate outdoor gear such as coats, boots, snow pants, hats, and gloves/mittens.
