Dear family,
             I have enjoyed the first semester with your child.  We presently have a short time until Christmas, which is when the third six weeks ends.  Goodness, this half of the year is going fast!
             At Christmas, we have an afternoon party starting at 2:40 on December 20.  We would appreciate light refreshments.  The next day, December 21, will be an early release day.
              In the past, the third and fourth graders have collected canned food, toys, or blankets/towels for Noah's Ark animals instead of participating in a toy gift exchange.  The children and I will talk about this, and I will let you know.  
              Please continue to help with reading and learning multiplication facts at home.
