On the HORIZON
Please note:  
The items on the calendar in black are my classroom items.  
They are subject to change if the school calendar changes.  
I will give you lots of notice.
December

A great idea for a Christmas present is skates and a helmet.  Skating starts the first week in January.  It would be great if everyone could practice skating before the skating unit begins.

•Friday, 1st -- Blue & Green - School Colours Dress Up Day -- School Wide Spirit Day --  Please wear blue & green to school today.
•Monday, 4th -- Christmas Market -- organized by the Parent Council.
A note went home from the council with tags.  If you need another note or more tags, please let me know.  The children will be bringing home the gifts they choose for their family today.

Information about the Market:
-Please send used items from home, (except for stuffies), that you no longer require and may be a treasure for someone else.

-Please send the money donation, (suggestion is a $1 a gift), any time.
The children don't take the money to the market, just the tags.  I collect the money when I receive it and give it to Mrs. Anderson.

-The children go shopping whether they donate items or bring money.

-There is no record kept of who donated money or gifts.

Please email me, if you have any questions or catch me at school.
