Week of 11/26-11/30

Hello Families!

I hope you had a fantastic Thanksgiving with family and friends! My family and I visited my mother-in-law in the Bay Area and are about to embark on the long drive home. I am reminded of all the wonderful people and relationships I have to be thankful for, including all of you! A note about spelling lists: I have consolidated the files and now have one pdf with all of the lists. The file is calls “Everyday Spelling (All Lists)”

Some final notes:

Christmas Cards ON SALE NOW!: We have partnered again this year with our wonderful St. Al’s Parish Knights of Columbus to bring you Christmas cards featuring the artwork of our Keep Christ In Christmas poster contest winners from last year. Each $15 set contains 10 cards with unique artwork and 10 envelopes.

It’s hard to believe the first trimester is coming to close so soon! As we reach this milestone, please let me know if you would like to meet regarding your child’s progress.

In the coming weeks, you will be getting email instructions on how you can help with the class auction project.

Lastly, a note about parking lot safety: Please remember to drive slowly and use the cross walk in the parking lot.

Thank you for sharing your children with St Al’s!
