NOTE FROM PRINCIPAL

What a whirlwind December has been. Teachers and students have been working hard and making excellent progress. For December we taught and practiced the character trait of caring; it was wonderful to see so many young people making a conscious effort to help others. We had the pleasure of having a violinist from New York, Kristen Lee, perform for us…the kids were greatly impressed and gave her roaring applause. This month we also met our school-wide goal of earning 6,000 Eagle Feathers. We celebrated by sending the polar express Hot Coco Train to every classroom…boy did we have fun Monday doing that!  We also had lovely performances from our very own orchestra and band students this week…such a nice way to get into the holiday spirit.

Today is the start of two weeks away from the classroom. I know the kids are likely excited to have a break and parents are no doubt looking forward to a couple weeks of uninterrupted quality family time. We will all be here at school Tuesday, January 2nd bright and early to welcome all the children back. I look forward to that day; it’s almost like the first day of school except during the winter. The kids’ bright smiles will be welcome rays of sunshine. Until then, enjoy your holiday and your family time…I’m sure there are many fun winter activities to be had.

Warmly,

Charleen Hayes 


WINTER BREAK

No school December 18th thru January 1, 2018.  School resumes Tuesday, January 2nd at 9:00am.


EXTRA CLOTHES

With the inclement weather, please make sure that your students have a change of clothes in their backpacks.  We have very limited clothes in the nurse’s room.  Thank you for helping our little ones stay dry this Winter. 


INCLEMENT WEATHER CONDITIONS

Please keep the following information readily available in case you need to check if school has been cancelled or delayed due to weather or other emergency conditions.  Radio: KGY 1240 AM or 96.9 FM, KMAS 1030 AM, KXXO 96.1 FM and KAOS 89.3 FM.  Internet:  http://osd.wednet.edu.  Parents please keep in mind that there is no student supervision when school starts late or is cancelled.  Web or media alerts will inform families if emergency/snow bus routes are being used.  For more information access the EMERGENCY INFORMATION link on the OSD home page at http://osd.wednet.edu


BOX TOPS

Box tops will be collected from each classroom on the last Thursday of each month and the class that brings in the most each month will receive a popcorn party.  Please watch for some sheets being sent home for the students to put their cutout box tops on.  This makes things a lot easier for the box top coordinator when counting them to redeem.

 

BROWN’S WORLD

Next stop for Brown’s World testing on 1/26 is South America! We’ll be learning about the countries and topography that comprise the continent to the South of us. We will also be learning about several mid-western and southern US states! Parents, please help your child study the maps, which will head home in early January. You can also find the maps at the link below. Thanks for helping your child foster a greater understanding about and appreciation for the world in which we live! 

And, if you are available to help test students on 1/26 from 9-noon, please send an email to christybezanson@gmail.com. Thank you!

We would like to take a moment to thank all the families that donated to our holiday giving program.  Your generosity touched the lives of 47 of our LP Brown families exceeding the amount of $3400.  We have an amazing community!
