I would to thank all the families who have so generously donated supplies to our classroom. A special Thank You to those families who donated books from the Book Fair. We have enjoyed reading our new books and I am sure we will continue to get many more hours of enjoyment from them.
We have had a great start to our year. The students are all very well behaved and have quickly picked up our classroom routines and procedures. I would like to remind parents that we encourage "healthy" snacks at school (ie. fruit, veggies, crackers, cheese) and try to discourage "sweet treats". Also, the only beverage allowed at school is water. In the event of a spill, which happens quite frequently, water dries quickly and does not leave behind a sticky residue.
As a reminder, Tuesday, September 20th is Dining Out Night at The Habit in La Canada. A portion of sales that night will be donated to our school.
Friday, September 30th is our Student of the Month Assembly and is also a "Spirit Day". Students are encouraged to wear school T-shirts or our school colors, blue and yellow. The class with the highest percentage of school spirit attire wins a Crescenta Cash certificate we can collect towards a class party later in the year. Student of the Month Assembly days are also the days I will turn in the Box Tops for Education we have collected so far which also results in Crescenta Cash for the top classroom.
I would like to encourage every family to join PTA. Membership dues are just $10 per adult. PTA is a great organization that provides many extras for our students. Classes with 100% participation are rewarded with an ice cream party!
