T'is the Season for Giving
It's a great time of year to be thankful for the blessings we each have, but to also remember that not everyone has the same blessings as us. It isSalem tradition for the First Grade classrooms to collect donations for the Methodist Children's Home Society located in Redford. This home has been serving the community for 101 years and gives a safe haven for abused and neglected children. A note will come home with your student this week. We will be collecting donations until Thursday, December 13th. I will be dropping these items off with my family, as well as taking pictures so that students can see the full vision of our project of giving. Thanks for participating in this kids to kids giving project!
Coming Soon: Flashlight Friday!
Just wanted to give a heads up as you are out doing holiday shopping for your First Graders. Starting sometime in January (date TBD), we will be having "Flashlight Friday" :) We will dim the lights and read/learn with our own flashlights! Keep your eyes open for deals on a flashlight that your student can bring to school on Fridays to spice up our learning. Also, if you would like to donate any extra flashlights to the classroom for backups when students forget I am happy to accept those! More info to come in January...(try to keep this a secret from your student until then please!)
Happy Birthday to Lucas on November 25th!
