There was a suggestion of adding the Penny Christmas idea to our party. If your child would like to participate have them bring 21 small items to pass out like a Secret Santa. The items could be a small piece of candy, cookie, pencil, sticker, or even a homemade item. They will get to secretly put it in each child’s bag and it will be revealed on the day of the party. This is a way for the kids to be a part of giving this Christmas. Books have already been brought, so in order to play that exchange game each child would need to still bring a book as well. I would put a limit of $5 on the book if adding the Penny Christmas gift. Please have these items brought to school by this next week. Thank you for helping these children have a great Christmas party.
It is finally December and our Christmas party is just around the corner. Mrs. Hidalgo has graciously chosen to help with this party. I am sending her names of parents that asked to help or send items! She will be contacting you soon. We will be having a book exchange for our class this year. Please purchase a book with a limit of $10 or less that would be appropriate for a boy or girl in 2nd grade. Please wrap it and send it to school by next week. Our party will be on December 20, 2013 from 9am to 10am. The parents can come to help decorate and set up at 8:30am. We look forward to spending time with you on this day if you can make it! Please contact me by phone or email if you have any questions.

I have sent home a feather for you and your child to decorate together. We will have a turkey in the hall that needs his feathers. If you would like to help him just decorate one of his feathers with items from home! This could be a fun project to do while spending time with your child. We hope you enjoy!
