Updates and Announcements:
  • We will have a C-house field trip to the Frederick Meijer Gardens on Friday, December 14.  This field trip will allow our students to connect with other kids in C house as well as learn about how winter holidays are celebrated around the world.  Most permission slips have been turned in and students have been notified if they still need to return their slips.
  • The School Spelling Bee qualifying test will be on December 18.  The top 25 students will have the chance to participate in  front of the school to represent us in the Grand Rapids Spelling Bee later this school year.
  • With snowy weather, we ask families help their children come to school prepared.  All students are asked to have arms and legs covered outside and if they are planning on walking through the snow, they need boots.  Students who would like to play in the snow must wear snow pants for recess.  I appreciate you making sure your child is ready for snow weather recess!
  • Junior Great books sign up forms went home today in Friday Folders.  This is an optional small group reading program for students to participate in during their lunch period once a week.  Sign ups are due by December 20, for more information check out Friday Folders.
