We had a great week in 6th grade.  We are working on fun Holiday packets for writing, we performed “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” for our 2nd grade buddies in Mrs. Hoke’s class and our band and chorus had a fantastic concert on Wednesday night!    We also began our next reading unit…..A Spy Unit!

Next week we have several holiday activities planned.  Please make sure you are signing the contract allowing your child to participate.  We are looking forward to a fun (and a little bit crazy) week!  🙂

IMPORTANT:  Every student needs a can of icing to make gingerbread houses on WEDNESDAY.  Please send one in as soon as possible OR let me know if you need help, and I am happy to provide icing for students.  Thank you!!  🙂
