- I asked for December Scholastic book orders early (Thursday, Nov. 23) so that if you have ordered some for holiday gifts, you are sure to get them on time. Please let me know if any of your order is a gift and I will set it aside and hand it to you personally rather than sending it home with your child.

- Please have your child read any little paper books that come home multiple times for practice. Thank you.
Thank you SO SO much for all the donations of baked goods this week for our bake sales in support of our friend Royce's family. They were a huge success and enabled the children to experience being a part of something bigger than themselves. As little people they seldom feel they are able to make a big contribution and make the world a better place for someone else. But as adults we know that what seems like even the tiniest gesture on our part can make a significant difference for someone. Like many things, kindness is a quality that children learn over time and through practice. When kids feel that their help is needed and welcomed, they gain confidence that they have a contribution to make, and they keep on helping. The bake sales this week helped to reinforce all our lessons at home and at school about compassion and being goodhearted. Thank you for making a difference.
Mrs. Bowden &
