November 2017 Notes

 

School will be closed -

    Friday, November 10th, for Veterans Day.

    The week of the November 20-24, for Thanksgiving.

 

This weekend is when Standard time starts and clocks are set back one hour. Time changes are very disruptive for children, and they may need a little more sleep than usual as they adjust.

 

One of my favorite books to read to the children at Thanksgiving time is 'Stone Soup'. It is a classic story about the benefits of having a willingness to share with others and working together for a common goal. This year we will make stone soup on Thursday, November 15th. Each child can sign up to bring a favorite vegetable to add to the soup. All the children are invited to come that morning and parents and grandparents are invited to join us for the feast at (12pm) with the children. Parents can sign up to bring a salad, rolls, or dessert. Some children enjoy making the soup, but not interested in eating very much of the soup. You may want to send a lunch if there is any question of how much he/she will eat. The sign up sheets can be found on the shelve as you enter the school.

 

To help you be prepared for when winter comes, I will put a sheet in your parent file explaining school closure because of snow and ice. I will usually send a text messages to parents to confirm closure. Even though Sherwood School District and our school may be open, please evaluate the road conditions where you live.

Thank you for your help in providing snacks for the children.

 

I pray that all of you have a blessed Thanksgiving with friends and family.

 

For His Glory,
