The End of October

Good afternoon families!
I can not believe Halloween is this week.  
A few things for this week:
1. We are making slime with our book buddies tomorrow afternoon.  If you care to send in a small Tupperware container for them to store it in, that would be great.  I ask that your child’s name is posted somewhere on the container; I would hate for the containers to get mixed up with their buddies.  
2.  Halloween is Thursday!!  Your child may come to school already dressed in their costumes.  Please send a change of clothes for them to change into after the party.  Our party will begin promptly at 8:30 and will last until 9:30.  Please arrive on time Thursday morning.  Thank you!
3.  We will start our Footprints for quarter 2 this week in class.  Because of Halloween, a new Footprint will go home next week.  We will still have our spelling test on Thursday and re-take on Friday of this week.  
4.  A formal invitation will come home early November, but please plan on our Thanksgiving luncheon and performance to be on Friday, November 22nd at 11:00.  The whole event should last no longer than 1 hour.  It is also an early release day, so you are free to take your child after the performance.   A sign-up will be posted next week for the luncheon.  Due to the large group of people expected to attend, I ask that everyone help out in some capacity.  We plan to have a lot of food!
Lastly, please join us for our Open House this Sunday from 2-4.  This is a perfect opportunity for you to meet the 2nd-grade teachers and check out their classrooms.  If you have any friends and neighbors that are interested in Wood Acres, this is a wonderful time for them to visit and check us out as well!
Have a great week!
