December 7, 2018


It’s Been a Busy Week

We added the words said and you to our Word Wall this week.  Our sight words so far are not, get, look, my, mom, dad, up, it, I, A, go, at, to, am, me, see, can, is, like, the, red, blue, yellow, green, orange, brown, and pink .  


We are practicing our Celebrations program every day and are eager for our performances on Tuesday, December 18th and Wednesday, December 19th. We will perform on Tuesday at 1:45.  This is a good day to bring grandparents or other extended relatives as it will not be as crowded as the evening performances. Wednesday’s performances will be at  at 6:00 pm and at 7:15 pm.  The whole school will be involved in this multicultural performance.

Students need to be in their classroom at 5:45 Wednesday evening, dressed in “party” or “church” clothes and ready to perform. Please do not bring them to the classroom before 5:45. Between performances the students will stay in the classrooms and eat pizza.  You will pick your child up in their classroom after the 2nd evening performance. If your child cannot make both performances Tuesday evening, please let the teachers know ahead of time.

More information will be coming next week.


International Night

On Wednesday, December 19th  at 5 pm, the Amigos de Russell Lee Committee, which funds and supports our Spanish program, will host a dinner in the cafeteria before the Celebrations program.  After the first performance, they will serve coffee, hot chocolate, and dessert.  Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children.  The committee is asking for help with food preparation, ticket sales, serving food and clean up.

Winter Holiday Party

Our Winter Party will be on December 20th at 9:30 am.  Please be on the look out for an email from Claire Traganos, kindergarten coordinator, about what we need for the party.  All are welcome!

Spanish – Stanfield

We are learning about holiday customs and traditions around the world.  This week we read The Legend of the Poinsettia by Tomie de Paola.  The story comes from Mexico and tells how a little girl’s simple gift becomes beautiful because it was given with a loving heart.  We made our own beautiful poinsettia.


We learned about Hanukkah and we made a menorah and played the dreidel game.  The Hebrew letters on each side stand for the words, A Great Miracle Happened There.  Ask you child about the miracle.
